They say

The featherweight Total Joy is a hardpack and powder shredder for confident women who rip.

We say

The lightweight is definitely a strong feature of the Total Joy. It feels featherlight underfoot and this immediately translates into effortless steering and ease of use at slower speeds. The surprising aspect of their performance is that as speeds and edge angles are cranked up they can still hold their own and deliver a really strong carving performance. In short turns they felt really lively and playful, yet could switch into long carving arcs with ease. In the off piste they felt a bit more grabby and less willing to float, but could cope well enough.

Tester Comments

Amanda Pirie
Great short turn ski while wide shovel gives lift off piste
Chemmy Alcott
Solid and strong, but equally lively and playful
