They say

A modern, frontside ski with precise edge control, high speed stability and nimble handling.

We say

Be in no doubt, this is one of the most powerful skis we tested in this category, out of everything we tested this is the one that feels closest related to real race performance. As the speeds increase it feels more at home and completely comfortable with big edge angles. It’s totally solid and stable, with incredibly high levels of grip. At slower speeds and in tighter arcs it feels a bit more like hard work, but speed fanatics will totally love it.
