They say

Now with the UVO (Ultimate Vibration Object) located on the shovel of the ski, the Code Speedwall has a race ski construction but is wider for more versatility. It also has a new wood core with tip and tail rocker.

We say

This is a ski with a complex construction and an interesting shape with the tip and tail rocker. The result is absolutely devastating performance! We were all blown away by the capabilities of the Code on the piste. The Code can really deliver race like levels of grip, with the ability to hold at high speeds on icy pistes, matched up to this exceptional edge grip is fantastic dampening. Maybe it’s because of the ‘UVO’ but the Code had unmatched capabilities in terms of delivering a smooth, vibration free ride in even the most demanding of situations. The final cherry on the cake, is a versatile, easy to use character at slower speeds which is helped by the rocker through the nose and tail.

Incredible! Solid edge grip, shouldn’t be able to make short turns as well as this
