We say

This is a playful, fun ski, which has lots of energy. It’s incredibly easy to pivot and is effortless to shift into different turn shapes. It has a light, instant easy access character which would give skiers confidence right from the first turn. On hardpack it holds a strong edge while delivering a silky smooth ride, it does this while always feeling really solid and confidence inspiring. The Luv Boat is a lively ski which covers any conditions and turn shape with ease, it’s a hard ski to fault and would suit all levels of skier.

Tester Comments

Lynn Mill
So lively but it won’t throw you around. Secure hold on piste with a soft, wide shovel to cope with the off piste
Rowena Phillips
Off piste it rotates pretty easily while still being solid underfoot
