They say

Our designers have re-worked the construction of skis in this range, choosing an ultralight wood core and tri-axial fibers to make them fun and dynamic to ski.

We say

This is another all mountain ski which looks like it’s well set up for deeper snow conditions. However, for such a wide ski it works surprisingly well on the groomed runs, giving really high levels of grip. In short turns it’s pretty lively and would work well on steep terrain. In long fast turns the shovel does flap which reduces the amount of grip you can get through the start of the turn. In off piste the Gambler works well with instant float and the reactive sidecut giving it plenty of character.

Tester Comments

Derek Chandler
In off piste soft snow the ski responds well, particularly in short turns. An easy off piste ski but for all mountain feels cumbersome
Aaron Tipping
Good shovel at the tip for off piste, the rocker picks up really nicely
