They say

The new Pinnacle range replaces last year’s Annex. It uses a new Konic core, which reduces weight in the centre and extremities of the ski to ease control, while keeping weight in the perimeter to maintain strength and stability.

We say

This is a very useable, fun, freeride ski. For its generous width the 105 feels exceptionally light and easy to use. In powder it works at its best when making short to medium radius turns, for this type of skiing the Pinnacle feels reactive and carves out a tight arc while being full of energy. It’s also easy to adjust and can move easily from one turn shape to another. In long fast turns the lighter tip felt less sturdy and flapped when going fast in hard conditions.

Tester Comments

Derek Chandler
Feels great in short to medium turns in both on and off piste, in longs you need to release the power to move into the next turn
Mark Jones
Light and easy to use, very adjustable and super reactive on the piste
