They say

The Ski features a unique elliptic sandwich construction offering exceptional torsional stiffness, as well as a true full-length wood core for an unmatched flex.

We say

The Ski is now evolving into a bit of a classic, having had continued fantastic feedback from the press since its debut. Even compared to the latest competition it still feels superb with its main qualities being a really sensitive touch with the snow. This is an easy to use ski that gives strong edge grip on the piste, particularly when making long, fast turns. In the powder it is lovely to use with the rockered shovel and wide platform giving lots of float and making it effortless to steer. For skiers favouring more off piste terrain, this is a brilliant choice.

Tester Comments

Al Morgan
If you like off piste, but spend a lot of time on groomed runs, it’s superb. A true aspiring freeride ski that works well all mountain
Pete Davison
Very predictable on and off piste, grips well on firm snow and powers through the crud with ease
