They say

A modern, frontside ski with precise edge control, high speed stability and nimble handling. The RX easily handles all frontside variables.

We say

Wow! This is a real class act, immediately you can feel the quality of the construction and build of this ski. It initially feels light and easy, but very quickly its apparent that it has a super smooth ride, masses of edge grip, yet still manages to have a lively reactive character. In short turns it’s powerful, can be thrown around with ease but still delivers brilliant edge hold. In long turns it’s really stable with high levels of grip. Some testers felt it lacked a bit of life in medium radius turns, but overall a great ski.

Tester Comments

Pete Davison
Stable, smooth and predictable. Holds a good edge at speed, comes to life in long radius turns
Mark Jones
Light, but really strong. Very high edge hold, a really interesting mix of lightweight construction and high performance
