Strengths Very high levels of grip - lovely high quality feel in long and short turns.
Weaknesses Hard to fault. Quite stiff, so would suit stronger riders.

They say

The all new Code UVO (Ultimate Vibration Object!) has new technology added to the Code’s construction to help give a supremely quiet, smooth ride. Placed on the shovel, the UVO absorbs vibrations in all directions, giving a smooth ride and a cleaner turn. A well constructed, high-end ski that seems to ooze depth of quality through every turn.

We say

At slow speeds it’s easy to use, the rockered tip and tail making it effortless to adjust direction through the arc. However, when you ramp up the speeds, the level of grip is astounding. This is a ski that can really deliver race levels of performance in the right hands. As expected, the ride continues to be silky smooth, even in extra hard conditions. Overall, a fantastic piste ski.

Very grippy - well balanced throughout the turn with a high quality feel. Great ski!
