They say

The Eden uses a raised heel-plate, women-specific geometry, and a light core weight to make it focused on the needs of women.

We say

It has quite a generous waist width (85mm), which immediately makes its presence felt in backcountry conditions. This and the rockered nose make it easier to stay on the surface. It’s also surprisingly strong in fl ex and construction - and can be pushed onto higher speeds and steeper slopes with confidence. On piste, it was better at big arcs; making short turns, it was not so quick from edge to edge. Would suit strong skiers who love to ride fast in variable conditions.
