They say

The flagship of our all mountain women’s skis. The Ooolaluv’s metal laminate sends this ski charging harder and with greater accuracy through any terrain.

We say

This ski does feel quite a serious bit of kit. It has really superb dampening properties so it consistently gives out a super smooth ride. Levels of grip are really high and you can charge hard in the knowledge that it will not breakaway at speed. It feels equally at home in short or long turns, for a good blast on the piste, it’s hard to beat. In the off piste that powerful construction works more against it, so it feels less easy and playful at lower speeds, but can power through crud with ease. Overall, a quality ski, for girls who love to ride fast mainly on the piste.

Tester Comments

Steph Ede
Grippy on piste, can handle speed and charge. Solid and stable on piste
Rowena Phillips
Quite a stiff ski that works better on piste
