They say

Completely redesigned for this winter, the Annex features more taper and rocker in the tail, while it continues with a wood core and Hybritech sidewall.

We say

The Annex feels like a ski you can trust in the backcountry. Immediately it feels strong, well connected and once up to speed in long arcs it’s perfectly balanced. For long, fast turns in powder it really is a great ski, with the shape and flex giving it lots of stability and steers out smooth round arcs. It’s actually pretty versatile with the ability to blast out short turns pretty easily as well. On harder snow conditions it fairs pretty well and for a big mountain charger it can be cruised in big turns on the piste quite easily. Overall, a great all round big mountain ski.
