They say

The Neva uses a stance, sidecut and sidewalls specially optimized for women, it also uses a light Paulownia wood core with tip and tail rocker.

We say

Fun was the word that kept getting repeated on the tester’s scorecards!  The Neva’s have a strong, reactive nature on the piste, not feeling that dissimilar to Dynastar’s on-piste performance ski the Active Pro. They are very quick on the transition from turn to turn while edge grip is high in both long and short turns. The surprising aspect of their performance is that although you get an ace time on the piste, they also work pretty well in deeper conditions as well, with the rockered profile and lightweight meaning they were agile and easy to adapt, ultimately they need more width underfoot to be ripping in the powder, but for the odd foray out there, they work well.

Tester Comments

Lynn Mill
Shaped like a piste ski, but don’t be fooled! These skis adapt to the powder for a fun, easy time.
Steph Ede
I like this ski for all mountain fun, reliable ski and relatively good value for money.
