They say

The all-new Cham Women 97 uses a five-point sidecut and the radical looking shape which is common to all skis in the range. The women’s version uses a lightweight paulownia wood fibre core and a 20% shorter tip rocker than the men’s.

We say

This is one of the new-school breed of freeride skis which feels incredibly surfy and easy to adjust. The beauty of this sort of character is that it’s really easy to dump speed and make quick adjustments when you need to. Match that with the lighter weight of the women’s version, and you have a ski that’s really easy to use in deep snow. It’s a pretty radical shape, and some of the testers felt the tail could have been better balanced through the end of the turn. Overall, a fun, easy ski with a strong character.

Tester Comments

Rowena Phillips
Light and easy to ski, huge tip rocker bounces around a bit on piste
