They say

Maximum power and precision on piste comes from two layers of Titanium, carbon inserts and full woodcore. Push the limits to the max with a ski under 6kgs.

We say

The W Max held up really well in long carved turns where they gripped well, and handled higher speeds with ease. At a higher pace they felt constantly stable and solid and definitely exuded an air of confidence. The sidecut is really well judged and works well in all turn shapes, this makes it an enjoyable ski that feels well suited to blasting around on the groomed runs. It is particularly in long arcs that it feels at its best. Overall this is a ski that works really well on the piste, with no major faults.
