They say

Thanks to an all new metal laminate construction and Intelligrid, the latest version of our narrowest directional metal laminate ski will give you faster edge to edge performance.

We say

This was one of the easiest skis we tested in this category. The Invictus is unbelievably easy to initiate the turn, this is in thanks to its super wide shovel, which loves to take charge of proceedings and steer the ski into the new arc with minimal edge angle. It pivots and steers with zero effort, which makes it a playful, fun ski, particularly in powder and chopped up conditions away from the piste. On the groomed runs it’s more of a battle with the light and soft flex working against it to achieve high levels of grip. In fast, long arcs it feels lacking in stability for powerful riders. However, for all round, easy fun, it’s a great ski.

Tester Comments

John Taylor
A joy to ski on, very easy to use. Doesn’t give much back when pushed hard.
Al Morgan
An easy going fun ski, playful ski. Shovel gives loads of flotation in deep snow
