They say

The S6 woodcore and partial sidewall construction make the ski extremely precise and stable. It’s the ideal ski for maximum fun in all kinds of snow conditions and on any slope.

We say

This is a great all round ski which offers exceptional value for money. The level of performance on the piste is really high, with strong edge grip, great stability and a smooth ride. One of the S6’s strength is its ability to feel comfortable in all turn shapes, it feels really lively at all speeds and is quick from edge to edge. At very high speeds in long arcs the tip feels quite soft and ultimately that lack of torsional stiffness will cause it to struggle to hold on, but overall a great ski at an amazing price.

Amazingly lively at all speeds, really easy at slow speed and short radius turns
Mark Jones
Great ski which was near the top of this category, but at the lowest price point
