We say

This ski got great feedback from the test team! It’s lively, playful and easy to use at lower speeds while having the ability to adjust direction through the arc at any time. Moving up to bigger speeds and harder snow it still delivers a great performance with strong edge hold, particularly in long carved turns. It has a nice, easy, smooth edge change, which really helps on the transition, even when you’re cranking it. This was a hard ski to fault and gave a great all round performance.
