They say

The women’s on trail ski for advanced to intermediate skiers. Featuring our light core construction for a 20% reduction in weight and Prop tip technology for ultra light swing weight.

We say

This is a softer, lighter ski than many of the other skis we tested in this category. As expected, this makes turn initiation extremely easy, and at lower to medium speeds it’s effortless to use. They have good levels of grip and for skiers getting into carving this is a ski that would work really well, with that light, easy nature and reactive sidecut giving loads back to the skier. At higher speeds that softer flex shows itself and it can make it more of a challenge to maintain higher levels of grip, but overall this is a really well balanced, quality ski.
