They say

A 92mm waist, 5mm of camber underfoot, flat tail and rockered tip let you charge the descent or rip up the groomers and bumps with style.

 

We say

The Agent’s are easy to use and take low effort to steer into and out of the turn. They feel at their best in off piste conditions, where the lightweight and wider platform help keep them on the surface and easy to use. They also have a consistent and uniform flex, which makes them nice and predictable when moving through the turn. That consistency, makes them easy to read, but sometimes can make them feel like they are lacking a bit in response and could have more energy coming out of the turn.

Tester Comments

Steph Ede
Easy to turn and use, has a nice flex through the ski so no major surprises. Could hold a stronger edge on piste
