They say

Brand new this season, the Monster 88 is a tough, agile and versatile on piste ski that rides like a wide race ski.

We say

This is another hard charging ski that feels very comfortable at high speed. Particularly in long turns it feels immensely stable with massive levels of grip for an all mountain ski. On hard snow conditions it feels rock solid at doesn’t seem to have upper limits on speeds. Moving into deeper, off piste conditions it feels super solid in chopped up cruddy conditions, but feels less easy to use for shorter turns in powder. Overall, a great ski for fast, technical skiers.

Tester Comments

Pete Davison
Solid, stable and grippy at high speed on firm conditions. Better in longs than short turns. Strong and powerful 
Dougie Crawford
Solid and good fun. Can charge and work it
