They say

Another freeride ski that’s very focused on light weight. It uses a maple wood core, wide, early-rise tip and a narrow tail. It’s aimed at skiers who enjoy playing in the powder but want something that still performs well on piste.

We say

The Sick Day lives up to its remit, feeling very capable as an all-mountain proposition. It instantly feels playful, easy to use and very accessible to a wide range of abilities. The light weight and relatively soft flex make it effortless to move, particularly at slow speeds or in tight spots. The downside is that if you’re pushing high speeds in off-piste conditions, or going for big edge-angles on hardpack, it feels less capable, needing more strength in its construction. Overall, a great entry-level freeride choice.

Tester Comments

Chris Taine
A really adaptable and versatile ski and a good one-ski quiver for an adventurous intermediate-to-advanced skier
Alyn Morgan
Easy to use and puts a grin on your face - not one for charging off piste, but a great seasonaire ski
