They say

Put the hammer down and attack hard snow conditions, bumps and crud with confidence on the new award winning Invictus 89Ti.

We say

The Invictus feels light in weight in comparison to a lot of the other all mountain skis we tested. It pairs that light weight up with a really well balanced shape, which allows it to be easy to pivot and steer and generally very user friendly. On the piste it gives out good edge grip, with most of the power from the middle to the tail of the ski, it feels pretty solid in all turn shapes on the piste. It works well in deeper off piste conditions where the lightweight and wide shovel float up quickly.

Tester Comments

Pete Davison
A lightweight, well balanced ski, which makes it easy to pivot at all times
Al Morgan
Energy through the tail, good stability at speed. Once on the edge can feel locked into the turn shape
