They say

Within the Supershape series, the Magnum is designed as a fast yet manageable speed machine. It uses a Worldcup sandwich construction with ‘Intellifibers’ and the new ‘ERA 3.0 S’ shape which uses rocker to help turn initiation

We say

The new Magnum has plenty of power on tap - it feels immediately stable at home on the groomed runs. It’s a well damped, smooth ski which feels really in its element going for medium-shaped, fast arcs. It’s supremely stable, with no limits to its top speed. One of its characteristics is its ability to really flow from one turn to the next, while exiting with huge amounts of grip. They’re snappy, reactive and pretty close to perfection on piste.

Tester Comments

Lee Townsend
Feels like they have sorted the ‘KERS’ system - it used to over dampen, but now it’s lively without being too aggressive.
Pete Davison
Easy turn initiation, smooth ride and rock solid through the turns.
