They say

Every feature on the Flair SC UVO has been optimized to be lightweight, from the wood core to the bindings. Even the most ambitious skiers will save energy through the entire turn, cutting overall exhaustion.

We say

The Völkl got some fantastic feedback from our team. It starts by feeling very easy to initiate the turn while having a super forgiving smooth ride. As the speeds ramp up it feels solid, reliable and really holds an edge well, even on super hard snow. In fact, it’s really at high speeds that this ski comes alive, feeling like it craves speed and just wants to push you on. Overall, a fantastic ski, which piste experts will love, hard to fault!

It likes speed, definitely an expert ski, it has only one gear, but rides really well
