They say

We say

Part of the new Vantage line which incorporates new technology, shapes and profiles. A titanium backbone through the tail gives more response and stability, and a straighter cut through the nose allows it cope with hard-charging riders. The Ritual feels stiff and beefy; this gives it reassuring stability at high speeds. It’s the sort of ski that boosts your confidence for gunning it in difficult conditions. That solid construction also gives strong levels of grip, particularly on steeper terrain. At slower speeds, manoeuvring through the trees, it can feel a little less user-friendly. A strong fast ski for powerful riders

A good ski for a strong skier wanting to blast around the mountain

Good grip on steeper terrain. Quick turning
