We say

Unchanged graphically and structurally. The Cascade tip uses rocker to reduce inertia for a livelier ski, matched with a performance-orientated core for powerful delivery. Last year it proved a nimble on-piste performer with enough width and well judged shape to work well off piste. We struggled with it this year. It seemed quite grabby, and harder to adjust. We’re pretty sure this was down to tuning problems. It has high levels of grip, and gives lively, responsive performance. The tip creates good snow contact, yet the rocker really helps out in softer conditions.
