They say

The Code Speedwall S is shaped like a slalom ski, but wider. With a Speedwall reinforced wood core, Rmotion2 with Marker Xcell componentry, it provides a super smooth blend of quickness and all mountain versatility.

We say

Immediately you can feel this is a ski that has a very strong construction. It feels powerful and ready to take on high speeds and big edge angles. It has a very predictable sidecut that loves banging out perfect, round arcs.. It’s just brilliant, feeling totally secure with heaps of energy in shorter turns while retaining a smooth and stable ride. That being said, it’s definitely focused on tighter turns, which means it can sometimes feel more like a slalom ski. It’s well worth trying the bigger radius L before making a final decision.

Tester Comments

Derek Chandler
A joy to ski! Like floating down the pistes. Preferred the Code L, as is a more versatile shape
Mark Jones
Very strong, lots of grip, stable and smooth on hard snow
