They say

The Brahma is the go to all mountain freeride ski on days when the cold temps and dry spells make for firm conditions. A versatile sidecut and reduced rocker make them easier to ski, while flipcore technology grips hard snow and blasts through crud.

We say

The Brahma immediately feels like a powerful ski. It has huge reserves of edge grip and feels completely bombproof when pushed hard on groomed runs. Stability at high speed is faultless, this is a ski that will give any skier lots of confidence to really go for it and lay out some big, fast, arcs. The stiff tail really holds the arc and punches the skier out of the turn with a heavy dose of acceleration. This high performance makes it work well through variable conditions at high speed, but at slower speeds it feels less playful and a more physical ski to use. This is a great all mountain ski for powerful, confident skiers.

Tester Comments

Al Morgan
Tip floats up well in soft and variable conditions. Great grip on the piste.
Pete Davison
Strong edge hold on firm snow, very stable at speed. Feels heavy underfoot, strong and direct but unforgiving at slow speeds
