They say

With a large shovel and a tight radius, the Layla is designed as a freeride ski which can work well in all conditions. It has a similar design and construction to the men’s Adventure but uses a lighter wood core matched up to a tighter sidecut.

We say

This is another ski which is easy to use and is versatile enough to use in all conditions. This comes from a well-designed shovel that immediately gives the Layla easy float while powering through crud and powder. Particularly in long turns it feels silky smooth, with a ride that is confidence inspiring for the rider. It really is in long turns that the Layla’s construction plays to its strengths, whether on piste, crud or powder it feels easy and fun to make this type of turn. In shorter turns it feels a bit more cumbersome, but overall a great ski.

Tester Comments

Rowena Phillips
Smooth in longs and very absorbent, silky smooth ride, makes any off piste or crud feel very easy.
Lynn Mill
A versatile fun ski that’s great in off piste but feels a bit ‘tinny’ on the piste.
