They say

The new Vantage 97Ti features the new Prolite techniology and Titanium Tank Mesh to deliver a ski that is loaded with power that feels like a feather on your feet.

We say

The Vantage was another ski which works incredibly well as an all round ski that can deal with anything the mountain throws at it. Starting in backcountry conditions it immediately feels stable and smooth. At all speeds it feels comfortable, easy to use in slower, short turns with good float and easy turn initiation, while in longer, faster turns it has enough stability to give confidence. On the groomed runs it gives out solid edge grip for this type of ski, feeling very solid through long arcs.

Annabel Seel
Holds up well and is enjoyable to ski on and off piste. A great ski for this category.
Lynn Mill
Another great performer. Silky smooth through the crudiest of conditions without being boring.
