They say

A true all round ski, that offers power, control and stability on groomers.

We say

This brand doesn’t have a huge influence in the UK, but is really well sought after in Europe, with a reputation for excellence. The 88 doesn’t disappoint, this ski exudes quality right from the word go, it has a smooth well damped ride, the sidecut is brilliantly balanced with the skier always feeling they are balanced through the centre of the arc. It feels really fast onto the edge and for an all mountain ski, gives out an amazing performance in high speed turns on the piste. In deeper off piste conditions it works well, but is definitely more orientated for the groomers.
