They say

The TSTw is a women’s do everything lightweight ski. The EST All-Mountain rocker in the tip means easy turning, but has a traditional tail for charging the steeps

We say

The TST is a really playful ski with lots of rebound combined with massive floating abilities in the powder. It’s one of those skis that has a real ‘surfy’ feeling to it which makes it great fun in any deep snow conditions. On the piste it needs to be steered from the middle to get the best out of it with the tip and tail rocker causing less ski/snow contact. However, it has a reactive sidecut which gives the skier a strong arc to play with. Overall it’s a great ski that is great fun to use off piste because of its easy, playful character.

Tester Comments

Lynn Sharp
Great float from the big rocker which makes you feel like you’re surfing pow. Despite huge tip/tail rocker it gives good piste hold
Steph Ede
Extremely playful off piste ski, easy to use, does the job and all round winner!
