They say

Successor to the Affinity Storm, this is our widest and most progressive Vantage X W, with a Ti backbone.

We say

For an all mountain ski this is a powerful choice. The Vantage totally rips on the piste and feels more like a GS ski in long turns! It has huge amounts of grip and definitely has no limits to handling speed on the hardpack, there’s a lot of power that comes through the middle of the ski, and it feels better suited to big fast arcs, rather than short turns. That powerful, focused construction obviously works brilliantly on the groomed runs, however as it’s matched up to a relatively narrow shovel it feels quite hard work in the off piste.

Tester Comments

Chemmy Alcott
A great piste ski. Great power at speed which gives you full trust to lay over angles and generate speed
Lynn Mill
Loved skiing long turns on piste. Stable, no vibrations and looks cool
