They say

Featuring a new, next generation blend of rocker, sidecut and construction, each element of Cham 2.0 W has been rethought, re-designed, and re-shaped to deliver maximum freeride versatility to women.

We say

The Cham seemed to a really well judged ski for playing both on and off piste. On hard snow it delivers great edge hold throughout the whole length of the arc and is a ski that feels solid when tilted onto big angles. Although it felt strong on harder conditions, it still retains the ability to pivot and smear the top of the turn and always give the skier options to adjust. Moving into deeper off piste conditions it has huge floating properties and matches that up to a responsive flex and reactive sidecut. Overall a hard ski to fault, which was smooth, playful and solid.

These skis really surprised me! Don’t judge a book by its cover. I loved them! Held up in all conditions well, surprisingly easy to turn fast

The ease of use of this ski really stood out, but it could also support dynamic skiing so well
