They say

With a versatile waist width of 85mm underfoot, the OoolaLuv can ski everywhere. The new core gives skiers a lighter ski that results in reduced swing weight and a smooth flex.

We say

This is a soft and playful ski which is an absolute joy to use at medium speeds in all turn shapes, its incredibly easy to use with the light construction and rockered shovel making it zero effort to steer into the turn. It’s also very smooth in the transition into the turn with a great touch on the snow when moving from edge to edge. In the off piste they turn well and remain a fun ski to use. At higher speeds on hard pistes the lighter construction starts to make its mark and it feels less stable. Overall, a great ski that will be a superb choice for aspiring all mountain skiers.
