They say

The Viva is designed to be an easy to use, fun carver for advanced skiers. It’s a complex construction which features tip and tail rocker, Blizzard's full suspension system and a full wood core. This winter sees a new topsheet, while the construction and shape has continued unchanged.

We say

The feedback from the team was amazing on this ski, everyone can back with really positive feelings about its performance, and it was difficult to find fault with it. This is a super responsive ski which feels very easy to drive into the turn. Once into the arc it has very high levels of grip and feels very solid, whether its long or short turns this is a ski that can handle high speeds and will consistently deliver high levels of performance. It’s very powerful through the end of the turn, and some less experienced skiers will find it harder to handle, but overall, this is a brilliant piste performance ski.
