They say

As well as a new topsheet, the Nemesis features a light wood core with synthetic ’stringers’ which help add a reactive performance. It uses a ‘slow rise’ tip which reduces contact with the snow by 25%. 

We say

The Nemesis handles extremely well on piste for a freeride ski. It has high levels of edge-grip, and doesn’t feel ‘over rockered’. This means it retains good contact with the snow and you can really feel the ski working hard to get optimum edge-hold, particularly on initiation of the turn. In deeper off-piste conditions, the light construction makes itself felt: the Nemesis feels easy to use with a playful, flowing character that lets the skier take charge and be assertive in this type of terrain. A truly impressive ski that works really well as a one- ski quiver.

They were in their element in all conditions and put the fun back in my day!
Rowena Phillips
Great grip for a freeride ski on the piste. Held like most high-performance skis, but also easy and flowing off piste
