They say

Be calm, cool and….Collective flying all over the mountain. This machine cuts ruts on groomers as easily as figure 8’s in powder.

We say

This is an exceptionally easy ski to use, with a fantastic super smooth flex. It has great float and stability in deep conditions because of its great fore/aft support. It was one of the most enjoyable skis we tested in backcountry conditions, with amazing ease of use matched up to a sensitive, high quality ride. On the groomed runs it’s light and nimble while still being able to lay down high levels of grip when on the edge. Overall this is a really fun, playful, ski which works incredibly well in all conditions.

Great on the piste, skied like a much narrower ski. Stable and playful in deeper off piste

Great value freeride ski! Loves the deep and performs well in variable conditions
