We say

With a wider platform, the new Watea uses a progressive nose rocker, full wood core and Air Carbon, which gives great strength while retaining light weight. ‘Solid’ was the word that kept coming back from the test team. This freeride ski that immediately feels well balanced, with a well judged shape and flex which immediately gives you confidence. It allows you to go into any conditions, the early-rise tip making them easy to steer, while the powerful construction gives good stability at speed. The Watea was also a cool blast for big, long turns on the piste

Tester Comments

Al Morgan
It looks stiff and full on, but actually is a really accessible, versatile ski
Pete Davison
What a great ski! Solid, powerful and really stable in the deep, but at the same time it’s easy to throw around.
