They say

The Sentra is for confident female skiers who desire supreme carving performance but can also handle a variety of snow conditions with ease.

We say

This is a strong, relatively stiff ski which feels geared up for high performance. That strong flex means they grip hard on steep icy terrain while also allowing them to feel stable at speed. The wider nose really helps steer into the turn, while the stiff tail really accelerates the ski out of the turn. This character makes it great fun on the piste, where if you are ‘on it’ it can be exhilarating to ride. However some testers felt there was a bit of a mismatch between tip and tail, which makes them challenging to ride, particularly at slower speeds.

Tester Comments

Rowena Phillips
They’re stiff so good for steep icy slopes and the stiffness makes them good for speed
Eilidh McCloud
Comfortable cruising at speed. Odd grip, may have been tuning issue with this ski
