They say

The Ivory is designed for skiers who really value piste performance. It uses the latest Airtec technology, which reduces the weight of the wood core by 25% without losing bending and torsional stability.

We say

This is another piste ski that’s initially very easy to use, particularly on turn initiation it's completely effortless and requires no effort to start a new change of direction. It feels adaptable and comfortable for on piste carving, being particularly strong in long turns where it has a smooth ride and good levels of grip. Through the start of the turn the Ivory grips well with shovel of the ski holding on well, coming out of the turn the softer tail makes it easy to adjust but does wash away if pushed hard. Overall, an easy ski to use that feels at its best in long turns.

Tester Comments

Steph Ede
Quite a nice all round ski, playful, fun and versatile
Lynn Mill
Starts well, soft in the middle and then can lose grip at the end of the turn
