They say

The Nemesis looks amazing in its new graphic! It uses a ‘wi-Core’ construction which makes the ski 25% lighter than a ski with a traditional wood core. It uses a rockered tip and normal camber underfoot.

We say

The lightweight construction of this ski is immediately apparent. It feels very playful and easy to steer and adjust through the curve. In powder in feels great for long turns with great stability but also with lots of energy and reactivity from inputs from the skier. In general it’s a ski which has a lot of energy and feels like it’s ready for action and up for any challenge. This is mainly down to the responsive flex and lightweight. On the piste it skis well, but the width makes it better suited to long turns where the relatively stiff tail gives great grip through the end of the turn.

Tester Comments

Steph Ede
Nice solid ski, love the flat tail. Playful and bouncy in the powder.
Rowena Phillips
Great piste like construction, would work really well in all mountain conditions.
