They say

We say

Takes its construction cues from Fischer’s highly renowned race series, using a sandwich sidewall construction and a full carbon jacket, which reduces weight while still delivering the strength required. This ski feels as you would expect - solid, smooth and very powerful on the edge. It behaves like a race ski in its level of performance on the edge, but has a well damped ride which makes it feel forgiving to balance against at high speeds. It feels particularly suited to long, fast turns, where the strong grip and inspiring ride make it feel bomb-proof. In shorter turns they feel quite slow onto the edge, and could use more rebound - but still give high levels of edge hold.
