They say

The Unique is a completely new ski which is designed as an ultra lightweight high performance women’s carving ski. A new light core reduces weight by 20%, this is combined with subtle tip rocker for a smoother turn entry.

We say

The lightweight and relatively narrow 72mm waist makes the Unique a great ski for short turns. It feels very quick and reactive onto the edge while that super lightweight is immediately evident right from the first turn, giving the ski the ability to redirect and change turn shape in an instant. In long turns it feels stiff enough across the ski to hold out and maintain strong grip through the turn, like a lot of skis in this category it does have an upper limit and although the lighter weight helps on general maneuverability of the ski, eventually some of our testers would have liked a stronger, more reactive flex for high speeds on hard snow.

Tester Comments

Steph Ede
Holds well on long turns, steady and stable. Would suit an advanced skier rather than expert as the flex is quite soft
Rowena Phillips
Stiffness makes long turns smooth and works well in short turns
