They say

New for this winter the Adventure is the new version of last year’s Venture. It takes a lot of its design and construction cues from the Venture but opens up the width and shape of the ski.

We say

This is a grippy, solid ski that has loads of power on tap. It’s a great choice for skiers who love to stick the ski on its edge and ride out through the crud. The Venturi tip does a great job of clearing snow and gives the Adventure the ability to maintain speed through the curve in deeper conditions. It has a sturdy, solid feel to the construction which is apparent all the time, this is a hardcharging ski with lots of punch coming out of the turns which powerful, fast skiers will love. Ease of use and playfulness is not really its forte, and it can feel more of a struggle at slower speeds and in quick manoeuvres but for fast, powerful skiing it’s a great choice.

Strong stiff ski, good for long turns and aggressive skiing.

Grippy, solid, loads of power, awesome for chopped up conditions.
