They say

The Buzz has a wide rocker tip and short sidecut to give a reactive character for a wide ski. It also uses a light wood core with a dynamic tri-axial wrap to give good torsional control and light weight.

We say

The initial impression is that it’s a surprisingly easy ski to use. The very soft, long nose helps the Buzz get instant float and allows the ski to be steered without requiring a lot of physical effort. This is also a noticeably light ski, which makes it easier to use in tricky conditions, particularly at slower speeds. It’s a ski that would work well with a touring set-up. On hardpack that lighter weight and soft nose make it feel less sure of itself, with stability and damping starting to struggle. Overall, this is an easy-to-use backcountry ski that’s a great touring option.

Tester Comments

Lee Townend
Very soft in the nose - good off-piste long-turn cruising. Felt a little floppy on piste
Pete Davison
Great fun off piste - really stable and supportive
