They say

The Brahma is the go to ski on days when cold temps and dry spells make for firm snow conditions. You’ll be linking turns on this quick, responsive ski all season.

We say

The Brahma felt like one of the most high speed focused skis we tested. It has immense stability at speed and huge amounts of edge grip when pushed hard. On the piste this is a very strong performer and gives race like levels of performance in longer turns. That strong construction which gives it strong abilities on the piste in some ways works against it in softer, off piste conditions where it feels more unforgiving to use, particularly at slower speeds and in shorter turn shapes. Overall, this ski is a blast, particularly for the groomed runs.

Tester Comments

Al Morgan
Very stable at speed, skied them really hard with a massive edge angle, but didn’t really feel like an all mountain ski
Nicko Braxton
Great for high speed, but not much else!
