We say

When the Gotoma first arrived on the scene, it was a stiff, hard charger that demanded aggressive riding. Since then it has gained some width, some extra rocker and a cool new topsheet. A great ski, whcih feels much easier to use than the original Gotoma, with a surprisingly fun, surfstyle character. It’s effortless to smear and pivot, even in tricky conditions. Up to higher speeds it feels stable, floaty and still very easy to change direction. On the piste it copes well but has lost some of that grunt and edge-grip it used to have.

Tester Comments

Mark Jones
Fantastic in powder, Very easy to smear. No effort in any off-piste conditions.
Lee Townend
Awesome for stomping landings. Not as stiff as it used to be. Very versatile off piste.
