They say

We say

The Daytona comes with a striking new topsheet and a construction that’s influenced by race skis. It’s focused on strong piste skiers looking to carve medium turns. Easy to use, it’s light underfoot and incredibly easy to pivot. On turn initiation is effortless: it almost seems to want to change direction before you do! This actually makes it a great tool for short turns where it’s super quick for changing direction. In longer turns it grips well on the edge, and feels great on easy terrain. On hard snow and at high speeds it grips, but can start to feel unstable at very high speeds. Overall, a great-looking model for aspiring carving skiers.

Tester Comments

Pete Davison
Light and easy. At higher speeds the tail is too soft and can drift. A good ski for the lighter skier who wants to cruise
Lee Townend
Awesome graphics, easy to use and good for short turns at medium speeds
