They say

We say

The Spitfire has built a formidable reputation over the last few years, winning our tests several years running. This version uses the EDT binding interface which reduces vibration and gives an effective transfer of energy. The new plate absolutely transforms this ski. It moves it from a high performance carver into a seriously heavy-duty beast! Basically, it rips. It feels as though it needs a lot of pace before it gets interested, but get some speed up, tilt them over and see what happens. You’re rewarded with massive levels of grip and a feeling of unlimited power underfoot. This feels more like a race ski than something for recreational use, and lighter, less aggressive skiers will probably struggle with them. But for full, no-holds-barred high-speed skiing, they’re amazing!

Tester Comments

Pete Davison
A real powerhouse! A great sidecut for punching out all turn-shapes, but you will be punished if you are in the backseat.
Mark Jones
Very beefy on long, fast turns. The plate gives back loads of power
