They say

A progressive new women’s all mountain ski, Glory delivers a beautifully balanced blend of playfulness and versatility for intermediate skiers.

We say

This is an exceptionally well priced ski, for its level of performance it is amazingly good value. At slow speeds it’s really easy to use, feeling light and low effort to steer into the turn. As the pace ramps up it’s surprising how well the Glory can cope with big edge angles, it can carve out both long and short turns with ease, feeling grippy and full of energy. It does have upper limits, and there is a point where grip will be more of a struggle, but it will work well for most level of skiers. In the off piste it skied well, although it can feel a bit stiff underfoot. Overall a great all mountain ski.

Tester Comments

Bella Seel
Best value for money ski in my opinion. Happy at all speeds, smooth in shorts and longs
Rowena Phillips
Powerful girls ski that grips well on piste but is relatively easy to turn off piste
