They say

The new Koa uses ‘Air Tec’ construction which reduces the weight of the wood core by 25% without losing bending and torsional rigidity.

We say

The Koa is a very light ski and this is immediately apparent in how it feels underfoot and the speed in which it can change direction. The real surprise, is that although it has that initial light feeling it still has the power to deliver a strong performance on the piste. Grip through the turn is incredibly high both in long turns where it feels like it has no limits, and in short turns where it feels snappy and responsive. The shape of the ski engages really quickly when its tipped onto the edge and it always feels super reactive and up for action. In the powder and the crud it feels playful and floaty and can definitely handle the conditions with ease. Overall, an easy, light all mountain ski that is surprisingly strong on the piste.

Lynn Mill
Kept waiting for these light skis to collapse under pressure, but they never did! Sturdy and strong on the piste

Playful and fun in variable conditions.
