They say

The Spitfire has been a benchmark piste-performance ski for many years, and this winter sees new graphics and a new nose profile. It continues to use the same construction and a combination of a slalom tip with a GS body.

We say

It’s interesting to get back on this award-winning ski after trying other versions the previous winter. The overriding impression is its rock-solid carving ability. It’s a ski that holds onto the edge like grim death! It feels equally grippy whether it’s long drawn out arcs or short grippy turns. The shape is quite aggressive, the nose pulling you into the turn hard, and the sidecut always keen to make an arc. Overall this is a powerful, aggressive ski that’s not easy to adjust. But strong riders will love it.

Tester Comments

Chris Taine
Rock solid in medium-to-long turns. Nice flex and rebound when you find the sweet spot.
Derek Chandler
Great one-trick pony for carving. Not versatile or subtle enough for other high performance skiing away from the pistes.
