They say

The No 6 expands its waist, gets some rocker and has a striking new topsheet. The new Power Rail integrated binding system enables it to flex freely and deliver more power.

We say

One noticeable effect is the way it enters the turn with massive energy and finishes with a tight arc. It fires out of the turn with strong acceleration, boosted by a fairly stiff tail which can sometimes be too strong; you have to stay really balanced. It’s powerful for carving on the piste but in deeper conditions, it feels quite stiff and a bit too narrow to be easy to handle.
