They say

Grips like a high performance ski, but is still nice and floaty in the pow.

We say

The Vantage has a reactive sidecut which gives loads of response when put onto the edge, this makes them great fun on the groomed runs where they are very comfortable in mid to long radius turns. When the speed is ramped up they feel strong and stable enough to handle it. In shorter turns they feel a bit more cumbersome, being slower from edge to edge. In off piste conditions they have lots of float and feel very playful. Overall the Vantage has a strong design that gives a broad appeal, it covers all bases well and is very capable as an all mountain ski.

Tester Comments

Al Morgan
Feels a lot wider than a 90mm ski. Open them up and these are great, especially in longer turns
John Taylor
A very safe and confidence building ski. A reassuring all rounder
