They say

The Automatic range has been extended this year, with the 109 coming in as a ski that can rip up the powder, but can also be versatile enough to ski all mountain when needed to. It uses an extended ‘Powder Rocker’ profile through the nose, with grippier ‘All Mountain Rocker’ length through the tail.

We say

We loved last year’s powerful big mountain Automatic, so the team was really excited to try out the new 109. Like its bigger brother this ski feels pretty sturdy, it has a solid construction which makes it feel smooth at speed and well planted on the snow. It’s nicely balanced and capable of high speeds with the ability to cope with demanding terrain. As a rock solid, go anywhere ski, it does feel quite heavy underfoot and is best suited to aggressive, strong skiers. It’s not a ski that allows you to relax, but focused, sharp skiers will enjoy it’s all mountain abilities.

Stable, smooth ski with tons of power. It has a versatile camber profile which allows it to ski all conditions.

I like this ski, its nimble and powerful and really engages with the edge.
