They say

The Ikonic 84 is the perfect all conditions reort ski for those seeking top level performance with a softer flex. Lively and energetic, it reduces weight and leg fatigue to keep you charging.

We say

The Iconic is a lively ski that immediately feels full of energy. It’s really quick from edge to edge and felt like one of the strongest performers in this category for short turns on harder snow. It has a solid construction and this comes through in its overall performance on the piste where its grippy, lively and confidence building, particularly when ramped up to higher speeds.In backcountry conditions away from the pistes it felt less comfortable, it’s relatively narrow width and profile allowed it to cope, but not with the same float and ease of use of many of the other skis we tested.

Tester Comments

Mark Jones
Quick edge to edge. Felt more like a piste ski, in these conditions it was a strong performer which gave me.
Nicko Braxton
Felt too piste orientated for all mountain, needs to skied hard. Didn’t give confidence in variable conditions
