They say

The worlds lightest high performance ski for good to advanced women skiers. This timeless on piste ski is a great fit for your elegant skiing style.

We say

The Epic Joy is seriously narrow; 65mm underfoot really makes itself felt. In short turns it is electric fast moving onto the edge, feeling super snappy from turn to turn. This is combined with an amazingly light construction, with these two factors mixed together it makes for a ski that is incredibly easy ski to use that feels super quick on the edge. It’s really in short turns that is a stand out performer, in medium arcs it still carves really well and feels surprisingly solid at speed. In long fast arcs on hard piste it starts to feel less stable, but overall this is a ski with a strong character that would suit skiers who love making shorter turns.

Tester Comments

Lynn Mill
The narrowness of its waist allows quick edge to edge mobility. Best suited for a skier who has agility and loves short turns on piste
Hannah Luke
Easy to move edge to edge with its narrow width underfoot, a versatile and smooth ski.
