They say

The Brahma is the go-to ski on days when cold temps and dry spells make for firm snow conditions. It uses the same award winning shape but gets a construction upgrade to carbon flipcore.

We say

The new Brahma immediately feels like a well balanced ski that’s comfortable going for any type of turn shape. It has a lovely smooth flex pattern, which allows for great feedback to the skier on what’s going on underfoot. Most of its grip is felt from the middle of the ski while the light, rockered shovel is set up for easy turn initiation and float in deep snow. This combination works well as an all mountain ski, but some testers felt there could be more grip on hardpack through the front of the ski.

Tester Comments

Mark Jones
Stable and well balanced ski. Good smooth flex, shovel is well suited to deeper snow
Derek Chandler
Cracking looking ski, good for short turns on steep, hard snow. Ski doesn’t engage at the start of the turn in long turns
