They say

The Experience 88HD is the undeniable benchmark for expert skiers. It blends the heart of a high performance carving machine with a smooth, effortless freeride feel.

We say

This is another all mountain ski which has great stability and edge grip on the piste, particularly in longer turns where they feel completely rock solid and easy to read through the arc. It’s definitely a ski which gives the skier confidence to go fast and lay the skis over on the edge, hard charging skiers will love it! In shorter turns it feels a bit heavier and less agile, but overall, it works really well on the piste. In deeper snow conditions away from the groomed runs, its wider platform and rockered tip help to make it usable, but it really feels more like a wide platformed piste ski than something that’s focused on powder.
