They say

The unique Superlite women’s architecture will give daring women high class-high-speed-carving emotions on any groomed slope.

We say

All of our team loved the look of these skis! It has a super cool design, which really makes it stand out from other skis within this group. It’s another ski that we tested that just inherently felt like it was built to a high standard of construction, it oozed quality. Performance wise it was a solid all rounder, with strong edge grip in longer turns. It feels easy to use with a quick easy pivoting ability, while the tail isn’t too stiff so it gives you a forgiving ride coming out of the turn. On icier slopes the Super Joy had more of a battle and lacked some of the blockbusting grip and reactiveness we have seen from some other skis.

Tester Comments

Steph Ede
No ‘wow’ factor but no major bad points either, pretty good all round ski that held an edge well in longer turns
Cool looking ski that is really light
