They say

Thanks to a 102mm waist, coupled with powder rocker-big in the tip, smaller in the tail. It’s designed to deliver awesome flotation and easy handling in soft snow. The Step down sidewall, 2.0 construction and lite woodcore guarantee a smooth ride, great durability and provide stability.

We say

One of the over riding comments from the test team was what great value this ski is! In terms of performance it feels really solid in all turn shapes, with plenty of grip and an easy to predict sidecut. In deeper snow it’s playful and easy to adjust through the turn, the pronounced rocker and smooth easy flex really helping out when steering through the arc. With the rocker profile it feels quite short underfoot for the length we skied, don’t be afraid to choose a long length!

Tester Comments

Al Morgan
A fun, playful freeride ski with a pronounced rocker and a smooth easy flex. Very easy to use
Derek Chandler
Blasted through chopped up conditions with ease. Floaty and light in deep pow, skied like a proper ski on the piste
