They say

The new Mythic 97 combines modern freeride elements with an ultra-lightweight, carbon infused construction, providing a high performance ski mountaineering tool.

We say

The Mythic instantly feels like a ski that is on your side. Its light weight matched to easy turning characteristics make it zero effort to get into the turn. It’s particularly at the start of the turn it engages really well, with minimal effort but still able to hook up and engage with the snow. In chopped up off piste conditions it felt very comfortable with good flotation properties and has a ride which gives the skier confidence to push on. On groomed runs the construction felt a bit more brittle and less forgiving on the edge, but overall this is a great ski.

Aaron Tipping
All round easy to use ski, picked up the turn nicely and had an easy finish. Very versatile and not hard work to play
