They say

The Mythic 97 blends modern freeride elements with an innovative, ultra lightweight construction.

We say

A strong all-rounder, the Mythic feels the true freeride ski in this group. It’s solid and stable at speed, while the fat tip floats with ease in deep powder. On hardpack it’s solid too, making super-smooth arcs. It feels like it can handle a hard charging ride - this may have been influenced by the binding, which was set up to suit strong riders. But we could definitely feel its quality.

Tester Comments

Pete Davison
Solid and stable in variable terrain. Heavier than others on the climb
Nicko Braxton
Smooth in long turns, plenty of float in powder
