They say

This is another performance ski which uses a super lightweight construction using a new material called Graphene which is the thinnest, lightest material used in ski construction. The Superjoy also uses their ERA 3 rocker which is designed to give the ski a greater bandwith of performance while being easier to use.

We say

The Super Joy looks like a really cool concept ski! This makes it stand out amongst the rest of the pack. The new construction of this ski certainly makes itself felt, with a lightweight which makes it feel easy to maneuver while the flex is well balanced through the length of the ski. It feels best suited to short turns where it feels very reactive, quick on the edge and with enough punch coming out of the turn to make it great fun. Moving into longer turns it grips well, but stability starts to suffer and as speeds increase it feels less comfortable.

Tester Comments

Lynn Mill
Worked really well in short turns, feels at its best in this type of turn shape, loses stability in long turns
Tessera Swallow
Great in short punchy turns, plenty of reaction with good levels of grip
