They say

Get more backcountry with a ski that’s light for less effort going up, and stable and predictable for coming down.

We say

With enough width to feel comfortable in deeper powder, the MTN floats up quickly, allowing you to focus on where you’re turning rather than on the ski’s reaction. It’s well balanced and easy to turn and has strong edge grip on hardpack. We skied it in a stronger, heavier Guardian binding, which worked well, but the team felt a lighter binding would make a better combo.

Tester Comments

Sam Parkes
Wide enough to allow skiers to enjoy decent performance in powder
Nicko Braxton
Strong edge hold on ice - a floaty charger
