They say

The Ski has been specifically developed to handle all types of skiing and terrain. It features a unique elliptic sandwich construction offering exceptional torsional stiffness, as well as a true full length wood core for unmatched flex.

We say

This ski has won countless awards, and is now a well established benchmark as an all mountain ski. Compared to the latest competition it still feels really strong. Its stand out characteristic is its super smooth ride, matched up to a construction which seems to make it really sensitive underfoot and allows the skier to totally read the snow conditions through the turn. They also feel pretty wide underfoot, and for skiing in mixed up conditions away from the piste that wide platform and progressive flex really makes a difference. That extra width does make itself felt in that it takes time to move up onto the edge in short turns, but overall still a brilliant ski for all mountain skiers who would favour more off piste.

Tester Comments

Pete Davison
Solid and stable at speed, both on piste and in variable conditions. Pushes through the crud with ease
Dougie Crawford
Nice to ski long turns, easy off piste. Felt wide on hard snow
