They say

Perfect for every day on the mountain whether you’re skiing hardpack or fresh powder. The full wood core, sandwich sidewalls and honeycomb tip means the Lux is super light and floaty.

We say

The Lux is light underfoot but is actually pretty strong when making turns on the hardpack. You can really feel the strength of the construction underfoot and this is where the all the grip gets developed. Although it has good edge hold the Lux is actually very easy to turn, with a light swing weight and a very pivoty nature. In the deeper off piste conditions it floats up pretty quickly but unfortunately the longest length the team could test was 161, it felt easy to use, but a longer platform would have helped.

Tester Comments

Steph Ede
Solid on the piste and easy to turn 
Rowena Phillips
Has strong graphics, relatively stiff so skied well on the piste
