They say

The Echo is a high performance ski which uses a sandwich construction, traditional camber and Oversize technology. The Echo has a typically oversized nose, topping out at 127mm. It’s also constructed using the latest eco friendly materials.

We say

This ski carves out a tight radius and feels like a slalom ski. In short turns it is brilliant with massive amounts of grip with a wide shovel that really drives you into the turn. The front of the ski dictates the character of how it behaves, constantly sniffing out the next opportunity to turn! The other upside of the wider nose is that it is easy to steer at slower speeds. On longer turns the shape can feel a bit too eager and makes it harder to carve out long, smooth turns.

Eco friendly slalom ski! Ripped in short turns on the steeps
