They say

The women’s version of the S3 comes in a narrower 96mm waist while using the same technology and design as the men’s version.

We say

The ‘spoon’ tip gives easy steering in the deep, and tip and tail rocker with a traditional camber underfoot for solid performance in harder conditions. The camber and solid construction made it grippy and strong on the piste. Off piste, it still retains that surf feeling, with good float and the ability to change direction very easily. This makes it great fun in the trees, where you can always adjust and get out of trouble if you need to.

Tester Comments

Rowena Phillips
The rocker tip and tail and the stiff core make this the ideal all-round off-piste ski
