They say

Carve out the perfect day on the all-new Famous 6. This new, committed women’s on trail ski delivers exhilarating yet accessible hard snow performance.

We say

This is another piste ski that feels easy and playful to use. It’s definitely livelier in a shorter turn where it has loads of energy and really pings the skier out of the turn. Every tester felt that it had lots of life and was good fun to use. It’s easy to initiate the turn and then once into the arc it grips hard and has lots of energy. That easy, light, playful character is brilliant in shorter turns, at higher speeds in bigger arcs it copes well, but stronger skiers would want more heft and stability.
