They say

The Pinnacle maintains the ability to cruise at high speed, on hard snow, while being nimble and floaty enough to crush off-trail features of every variety.

We say

The Pinnacle has a lovely feel underfoot and manages to cut through onto hard snow with ease. It has a strong rocker through the nose which makes itself felt in deeper powder where it floats up very quickly, particularly in short turns it constantly stays on top which makes it very easy to steer. On the groomed runs it shows good levels of grip but you will need to be nicely balanced and have the ability to stay over the center of the ski, if you get caught back the tail can take charge and it’s harder to redirect through the turn.

Tester Comments

Al Morgan
Tip gets deflected at speed in crusty/lumpy off piste, but fun to use in deeper soft snow
