They say

The Allura makes the frontside of the mountain the ultimate carving playground. This could be the most playful women’s ski on the market.

We say

This is another women’s specific ski that really can lay down a strong performance on the piste. It has great edge hold and is very sturdy on hard icy conditions. It’s a ski that can be relied on to give constant grip in any conditions on the piste and would suit aggressive skiers who like to put a lot into their skiing. It’s a bit more of a struggle at lower speeds where it need a fair bit of input from the skier to get it pivoting and turning, but overall this is a powerful ski that would work really well on the piste.

Tester Comments

Steph Ede
Great edge hold and a pretty aggressive ski, it likes to be worked hard, especially grippy short turns on steep icy slopes
Rowena Phillips
Can feel a little dull in more of a passive carved turn, but really strong with reliable edge grip
