They say

Built for ripping the groomers with the option of blazing off piste, the medium wide Monster 88 is a versatile all terrain ski with race department speed and agility.

We say

This year the Monster has had a change in its rocker to make the ski a bit softer in its flex. These changes do make themselves felt and definitely make the Monster more of an all round, user friendly piece of kit compared to last year. However, it does still retain that rock solid stability at speed, and has the ability to give the skier confidence when pushing on to big speeds. On piste it’s great fun, solid, stable and with good levels of grip. In deeper powder, it works well, but lacks a bit of life and agility compared to others.

Very user friendly, so easy to ski, solid all mountain ski

Feels light underfoot, great across broad range of turn shapes
