They say

This breakthrough new one ski quiver provides a huge sweet spot, keeping you firmly balanced in the driver’s seat across all terrain and conditions.

We say

There’s no question, this is an exceptionally light ski, which is incredibly easy to use. It feels best suited to slower speeds where the light swing weight makes it zero effort to change direction, while the relatively narrow waist allows it to be pretty quick from edge to edge for an all mountain ski. At higher speeds in long turns on hard snow that light construction seems to work against it and it feels like it lacks grip and power. Overall, a good ski for lower end skiers who want an easy ski to use for all mountain skiing.

Mark Jones
Easy to use, light. Lacks grip and power at higher speeds
Pete Davison
Light and easy at slow speeds, struggled at high speeds in the crud
