They say

Created for unlimited dynamic turn action, thanks to Triple Radius Technology. Free milled Titanium and the highly stable Diagotex TM make it stand out and give you grip on any slope.

We say

The Curv felt surprisingly easy to use for a piste focused ski. It’s another ski that felt initially quite soft and light and would work very well for skiers who are just starting to up their game on the groomed runs. It has quite a tight radius so feels well suited to tight arcs at slower speeds, where you can feel great response from your inputs to the ski. The overall construction and quality of dampening feels excellent and perfectly suited to entry level carved turns. At high speeds on hardpack it feels a bit less stable and would need a beefier construction to deliver high end performance.

Tester Comments

Al Morgan
A great ski for someone progressing and wanting good snow feel, easy and forgiving
John Taylor
A simple ski to use which is very easy on the piste, but struggled when pushed, the stiffer option might suit a stronger skier
