They say

The new Pop is designed as a ski for skiers who are just getting into dynamic all mountain riding. It has a relatively wide shovel, uses some light tip rocker and has a strong sidewall construction for grip on the piste.

We say

Although it looks like a ski focused on conditions away from the groomers the Pop is actually surprisingly strong when it comes to on piste performance. In long turns it has masses of grip directly underfoot and can really hold an edge when on big angles, even on icier slopes. The tail of the ski really hangs on and gives a good dose of acceleration coming out of the turn. In short turns it felt a bit less engaging with the shovel not really biting into the turn, but it was nimble enough to be fun. Unfortunately we could only get a short 155 to test. This meant in deeper snow and powder the Pop felt like it lost some stability with the strong edge grip and the reactive shape conspiring against it. However the shovel works well, and quickly gets the ski to rise up.

Tessera Swallow
The length we tried was quite short at 155, but it still had good grip at the end of the turn.
