They say

The Pursuit continues with the same construction and design as last winter but has a new topsheet. It uses some rocker through the tip with traditional camber underfoot, the lightweight aerospace laminates are there to provide stability and edge grip while reducing weight.

We say

One of the outstanding characteristics of this ski is its very high level of edge grip. Particularly underfoot it feels rock solid, with that edge hold continuing even at very high speeds. Overall it feels a punchy, lively ski that thrives on big edge angles. For skiers who are looking for a ski to deliver the goods on the piste, it’s a great choice, having high performance on tap in all turn shapes. Some testers thought it could be smoother and more engaged on the transition, but overall this is a fantastic piste ski.
