We say

A very light ski with 95mm underfoot makes it capable in any backcountry conditions. Rocker through the shovel is matched with traditional camber underfoot. In spite of its light weight, the Elysian really packs a punch. Its stiff tail boots you out of the turn and gives you good backup on steeper slopes. On piste it’s strong enough to carve great turns at high speeds. In deep powder, the width and nose rocker make it float on the surface and easy to manoeuvre, whatever the conditions. But for this level of performance our team thought they’d need a longer ski than the maximum size of 168cms.

Lynn Mill
Good shape. A great looking all-round ski that’s a lot of fun
Rowena Phillips
They have a big, stiff tail and are awesome for steeps, speed hungry and strong
