They say

The Magnum is a precision instrument for turning speed into pleasure. With Graphene embedded in the new Supershape Magnum you will enter a new dimension of skiing. Go as fast as you want all day long.

We say

The Supershape’s have always done really well in our tests, so we were very keen to try the new version for this year. It’s another piste ski that feels incredibly easy to use, it’s super light, totally effortless to steer into the new turn and generally is just almost zero effort at lower speeds. They feel stable and vibration free while the sidecut feels beautifully judged for medium sized arcs. At higher speeds and in longer turns they felt good, but lacked grip, the tuning on the skis we tested could have been better.

Tester Comments

Dougie Crawford
Felt stable and like they had potential. Needed better tuning on the edges to get the best out of them 
Mark Jones
Light, easy to use, lacked grip at higher speeds
