They say

The Icon is a freeride ski which allows complete exploration of all conditions.

We say

The Icon felt awesome in deep snow. For an all mountain ski it felt really at home in the pow, with the ability to drift and smear with the best of them, this ski is great fun for jibbing about away from the pistes. As well as the ability to float up really quickly it gives out a smooth ride in these conditions and gives the rider confidence to push on. On the piste it wasn’t such a positive story with it feeling wide underfoot, and therefore quite slow onto the edge and lacking grip. A great choice for skiers who focus more on off piste.

Tester Comments

Mark Jones
Smooth in long turns, very floaty in the powder, but feel very wide underfoot and lack grip on the hardpack
Pete Davison
Floats really well in soft, deep snow but has no edge grip on firm piste, better off piste than on piste
