They say

We say

A striking new ‘Levitation’ profile – a radical shape using a flat Pintail – is matched with a sidecut profile allowing more contact through both tip and tail. This distinctive shape and mind-altering graphics make the Cham stand out in the racks. The sharply defined shovel takes charge and does a great job leading the skier into a smooth, progressive turn. That fat tip also plays a role in lifting the front of the ski, making it easy to steer in deeper conditions. The tail - which feels quite stiff and boots you out of the turn with plenty of energy - can be a hard taskmaster, but the front of the ski is awesome

Tester Comments

Lee Townend
Smooth floaty tip, pretty aggressive in the tail, lean back and be punished!
Anthony Swallow
Twitchy at speed, but nice smooth progressive flex
