They say

The women’s version of the Cham shares the same shape and design characteristics of its male counterpart but uses a core which is 25% lighter by using Paulownia wood. It’s focused on skiers who want something exceptionally easy to use in powder

We say

Main impressions are that the Cham is a ski which gives massive float, match that up to a strong rockered shape and in deep conditions it’s a ski which is unbelievably easy to manoeuvre. In these conditions for short turns it’s effortless to make quick changes of direction and make adjustments through the turn . The huge shovel tip definitely makes itself felt in powder, it takes charge, rises up and helps to make the ski brilliant fun. On the groomers that tip keeps leading, taking the Cham into the arc and allowing the rest of the ski to do its job. It does have some downsides in that it the tip can flap and vibrate at high speeds, but overall this is a great ski.

Tester Comments

Steph Ede
Very adaptable in all snow types and conditions. Playful, fun and bouncy.
Lynn Mill
Great amount of float and big rocker makes them really easy to use in shorter turns.
