They say

Merging freeride DNA with a versatile, all mountain waist width, the all new Legend X88 delivers powerful, all terrain performance through any snow conditions.

We say

The X88 performed really well last winter, this year we see no change, it’s still a fabulous ski! One of the real highlights of its performance is the super smooth flex which gives the skier a real sense of what is happening underfoot. It maintains really good ski/snow contact and feels really sensitive to inputs. On piste it really is brilliant, with very high levels of edge grip while feeling completely comfortable when punching out medium to long arcs. In deeper conditions away from the piste that smooth flex and progressive rocker allow it to float up nice and early while feeling very reactive and fun in all turn shapes.

Tester Comments

John Taylor
Solid performer, a true classic in its second year. Easy to ski but has loads to give when pushed hard.
James Allen
A rock solid all mountain ski that can be pushed super hard at all times. Grips on anything, would probably suit a stronger skier
