They say

Traditional sidecut profile with tip rocker. For all mountain everyday ripping.

We say

The Invictus has a really impressive level of edge grip, particularly directly underfoot it feels super powerful and can really hold its own even on hard pisted conditions. For long, fast turns on hardpack it feels grippy and stable. In deep snow conditions it works well with the soft tip allowing the ski to rise up and steer. That difference in flex between the front and midbody of the ski can sometimes feel disconcerting with the overall flex pattern of the ski not feeling as well balanced as it could be. Overall, a strong all mountain ski with the majority of the power coming from the middle of the ski.
