They say

Lightweight women’s Flipcore gives this ski an easy, balanced feel, combined with powder specific rocker and camber underfoot it’s a winning recipe for flotation and on trail versatility.

We say

This is another fantastic looking ski, with beautiful graphics. It’s also a ski that feels built to go fast, it has a stiff enough flex that it can handle high speeds in crud and chopped up conditions with ease. That powerful construction also helps on the piste where it continues to feel rock solid, with high levels of edge grip for a freeride ski. The only downside to this high performance is that it can feel harder work when it comes to manoeuvring at slower speeds and in shorter turns.

Tester Comments

Steph Ede
Likes to ski fast, stiff enough to give good edge hold and doesn’t flap in the crud. Held up well on the piste, but not easy to use at slower speeds
Lynn Sharp
Fast and stiff, felt responsive in shorts and longs, but felt exhausting!
