They say

The 6 has new graphics and continues with the sandwich construction and ERA 3 technology. This uses a 20% rocker through the nose and moves vibration-absorbing fibres up to the shovel to give a smooth ride. 

We say

 A great looking high-end performance ski that holds excellent edge-grip in short and long turns on the piste. On the groomers it’s full of energy, has a very reactive sidecut and loves to be ridden hard in all turn-shapes. This is a performance ski that would suit focused, technically strong female skiers. In deeper conditions, because of its top-end performance, the Mya can be more difficult to use, needing more effort to make adjustments in steering. It needs to be worked hard to perform well.

Tester Comments

Lynn Mill
Very twitchy. The shovel makes short turns fun and lively.
Rowena Phillips
Great looking high-end performance ski. You have to work hard but it’s worth it!
