They say

From hard snow to the occasional off piste adventure, Völkl have created the performance standard that advanced to expert skiers will feel and enjoy on every turn.

We say

This is a fantastic all mountain choice. It’s a supremely well balanced ski that feels perfectly weighted underfoot, this allows it to be easy to turn and effortless to adjust at anytime. While being easy at slower speeds, it’s also really capable when pushed on to higher speeds and bigger edge angles. The levels of grip on the piste are incredibly high, with great energy coming out of the turns while constantly delivering a smooth ride. In deeper, off trail conditions it pulls of the amazing trick of still feeling easy to use and can cope really well. This is an all mountain ski that really can work in every situation.
