They say

The Spitfire range has been expanded, with the Dobermann range starting at high end race level and then moving down to easier on piste carvers. The Pro Evo combines a GS body with a slalom tip to give easy initiation with very high levels of grip.

We say

This is another ski that is supremely comfortable in any turn shape on the piste. The engagement of the tip is immediate, as soon as the ski is tilted over it’s on a mission to take the skier into directly into the new arc. It really comes together in short turns, where it's fast from edge to edge and very grippy through the whole length of the arc. For this type of skiing they work hard, with a slalom like sidecut and a huge amount oTi owed. In long fast turns they still feel solid but maybe because of the radical tip they feel less stable, more twitchy and are trickier to handle.

Tester Comments

Al Morgan
A great ski for an expert skier who wants to beast out short turns
Pete Davison
Good fun in short turns, the wide tip is easy to engage, while the ski feels light and nimble
