They say

The Quattro is made for female skiers who spend their skis lapping groomed trails, carving on firm snow, or sliding through mogul trails.

We say

The Quattro gives great edge hold that bites from the tip right from the start of the turn. Once into the arc it gives out good levels of grip and feels stable at all times. It feels at its best in long turns, where the sidecut and construction gives it a really high level of performance. It’s a ski that seems to come alive when the speeds are ramped up and the skier gets really active, at slow to medium speeds it feels less lively and not so playful.

Tester Comments

Chemmy Alcott
Stable at speed, great in long turns. Stiff at the tip, so less reactive at slower speeds
Lynn Mill
Unpredictable at high speeds, but a recreational skier will find it stable, grippy and reliable
