They say

Light, fun and easy, the Total Joy brings a new meaning to all mountain high performance. Never has such an easy turner been so incredibly emboldening.

We say

With its light Graphene construction the Total Joy feels super lightweight and immediately feels easy to use. It’s very playful at slower speeds, feeling quick to turn and no effort to pivot and adjust quickly through the arc. At higher speeds on hardpack it’s surprisingly grippy and that lightweight doesn’t mean a drop in performance, it can grip and carve with ease and feels surprisingly strong and solid. Moving into powder and crud it’s nice and floaty and drives into the turn really easily. It can feel like it drops the ball a bit through the end of the turn, where it can lose the tail end of the arc, but overall, a great ski.

Strong and solid ski, especially on the piste. Very light, but enjoyable, smooth and strong ski
