Strengths Light, yet strong and powerful in all turn shapes
Weaknesses Hard to fault, the lightweight can make it feel less sure on super hard snow

They say

Energy saving and extremely lightweight companion for all slopes. For experts who love speed but also enjoy more relaxed skiing at times.

We say

The lightweight of the F18 is immediately apparent as soon as you make the first turn. That light swing weight makes it effortless to turn and makes the ski feel like it is always on your side and easily engages into the new direction. As the speeds ramp up it feels pretty solid in all turn shapes with high levels of grip and good rebound and pop coming out of the turns. Overall, this is a hard ski to fault, which manages to achieve the difficult task of having a super lightweight construction while delivering strong high performance on the piste.
