They say

The future of freeride is here. A revolutionary fusion of backcountry, freestye and freeride performance. Featuring Powder Turn Rocker profile which virtually eliminates tip flap for increased stability.

We say

The Savory lays down quite a big footprint due to its width underfoot, this is matched up to a large rockered tip, in the powder this gives it lots of float and the abilty to drive through any tricky conditions with ease. On the piste it gives solid edge grip and feels stable at speed for a freeride ski. This is quite a heavy duty ski, and once up and running it works well, however at slower speeds and in confined areas it requires a fair bit of physical effort to make the turns.

Tester Comments

Steph Ede
Good edge grip on the piste and smooth around the turn. Hard work, needed a lot of steering
Lynn Sharp
Good float above the powder due to big rocker tip
