They say

A great high-end option. The perfect fusion of a slalom and GS ski.

We say

This is another ski that feels very strong and grippy on the edge, with the XTi feeling comfortable in all turn shapes. It has masses of rebound and really accelerates out of the turn. It’s a high energy ski that immediately feels ready to go. It doesn’t have the ultimate grip levels that some of the more race derived skis give out, but compensates by feeling relatively light, and very easy to use.

Tester Comments

Mark Jones
Good all round shape. Strong grip, well judged sidecut
