They say

Grips like a high performance piste ski, but still nice and floaty in the pow.

We say

For an all mountain ski, the Vantage has plenty of performance. It has a very reactive sidecut which engages quickly and then tears out some really impressive mid size arcs. It has high levels of edge hold, and really grips from the middle of the turn. For a ski that looks more backcountry orientated, it really delivers a high energy performance on the pistes. In deeper, off piste conditions it still works really well, with a wide shovel that gives instant float and easy pivoting. Overall a great all mountain ski which is incredibly well priced.

Tester Comments

Pete Davison
Awesome grip underfoot. Really forgiving at slower speeds and on variable snow. A true versatile all mountain option
Al Morgan
A good, light, nimble ski, which makes it easy for skiers getting into off piste
