They say

The Monster 98 is the ski most skis can only dream of being. It is light enough for backcountry, versatile enough for the sidecountry and fast enough to rip the groomers

We say

This is another powerful ski that feels stable and surefooted at speed. Particularly in big GS type turns it has heaps of grip and power and moves through chop and crud with ease. With 98mm underfoot it feels like a ski that could work well as an all mountain choice for strong skiers who love their powder, while enjoying the piste. In all turn shapes it feels comfortable and well balanced. Some testers felt like it was harder to handle at lower speeds, but overall this is a rock solid ski that can handle anything the mountain can throw at it.

Tester Comments

Strong, solid and dependable freeride ski that’s great at speed
