They say

Coming from the new ‘Gravity Powder’ lineup the new 100 uses a twin rocker shape, a full wood core and sandwich construction. It’s designed to be equally at home in the park and pipe as it is in off piste and powder.

We say

The overall look of this ski is fantastic; it’s definitely a real stand out ski in the lift lines! This is another ski in this category which is very easy to use, nimble and very playful. A lot of this is down to its lightweight construction, while the twin rocker makes it effortless to change direction through the turn. On the piste it arcs out quite a tight curve and is good fun to use. In deep backcountry conditions the playfulness and ease of use would be brilliant for aspiring freeride skiers, but more focused aggressive riders will probably look towards a stiffer, more stable ski.
