They say

Featuring a 70mm waist and IQ System technology, the Viva S6 is smooth, light and lively, providing a comfortable feel all over the mountain

We say

The Viva is very much a high performance ski, it feels race like in its abilities on the piste with fantastic grip on both long and short turns. You can work the ski really hard, particularly in long turns it will never break away and always feels smooth and stable. Powerful, confident skiers will love this ski! At slower speeds, as expected it feels a bit more unforgiving and generally this is a ski that thrives on being physically worked hard to get the best out of it.

Tester Comments

Lynn Sharp
Recommended for stronger skiers. Great to rail the edge through longer turns, but not so lively in shorts
Rowena Phillips
This is a beast which takes a while to tame! For a strong, powerful girl skier this ski is great, particularly in long, fast turns
