They say

Due to 3D Ridge technology the Eight gives a new integrated ski/binding contact point while reducing the overall package weight to give a versatile, all terrain and conditions ski

We say

This is another ski that’s ridiculously easy to use, in the powder it just instantly rises up and sits on the surface with the rockered profile and flex making it effortless to steer. In off piste conditions the 100 Eight feels really comfortable in all turn shapes being lively and reactive. In short turns it has loads of energy, while having great stability and float in longs. On the piste it grips surprisingly well although that generous rocker and underfoot width do have their limits, with the ski feeling at it’s best in backcountry powder conditions.

Tester Comments

Lynn Sharp
Consistently wide ski that just sits on the surface of the powder yet still retains stability at speed
Steph Ede
Fun, it felt like my ski! Full of life, playful, bouncy and easy to use
