They say

The Samba is a lightweight flipcore ski with 98mm waist. It’s the perfect setup for the women in search for a wider ski that boasts unparalled versatility.

We say

Overall the Samba got a great reaction from our test team. It has many great qualities; one of the key features is a silky smooth ride that retains that quality whatever the conditions. It feels like it has a solid, quality construction, which gives out a strong response from the skier and always delivers strong edge grip. It constantly delivers smooth, round turns. At the end of the turn it always manages to punch out some strong acceleration into the new direction. In deeper snow conditions it was fun, reactive and floaty. Great ski!

Bella Seel
Fantastic ski! Loved them, powerful and responsive, super smooth round turns. A true performer, exciting to ski
Rowena Phillips
A beefy ski with solid construction and rebound at the end of the turn
