They say

It’s super lightweight and the most off piste suited in the Affinity range. The All Mountain Rocker in the tip makes it ultra agile and a relatively wide 84mm waist ensures exceptional flotation.

We say

The Storm is a high performance ski that just loves blasting out fast turns on the piste. For an all mountain ski it has exceptionally high levels of grip and just feels completely planted when on the edge, this is a heavy, stiff ski that’s geared up for strong, accurate skiing. This is all great news for any high speed action, but does mean that less confident skiers will need to get their speed thresholds up before they can get the best out of the ski. Off piste it’s a similar story with great accuracy and performance at high speeds, but less float and ease of use at slower speeds.
