They say

Providing an incredible blend of quickness, versatility and power transmission for advanced to expert skiers, be it between the gates or any other slope conditions.

We say

This is a super strong ski that gives out really high levels of grip, in short turns it feels completely in its element. It’s another ski that uses quite a pronounced tip rocker, and it actually works really well on this ski, allowing the skier to move into the turn with no effort, while the powerful construction allows it to give amazing edge hold and power through the turn. In long turns it works well, but the sidecut and power feels best suited in short to medium arcs.

Tester Comments

Al Morgan
Rockered tip and tail makes turn engage easy, as well as exit. Great sensitivity through turn
Sam Parkes
Loved the liveliness, requires a lot of fore/aft to engage the ski
