They say

The Pinnacle 95 is the surfy, quiver of one freeride ski of the Pinnacle series. A 95mm waist allows the skier to change edges quickly and efficiently on piste and in variable terrain, but is still wide enough when the snow piles up.

We say

The Pinnacle is another ski that feels solid on the piste, it has high levels of grip for a ski of this width and holds onto the arc really well in long turns. It feels surprisingly quick from edge to edge and is very responsive. Off piste the early rise tip helps to give early float in deeper powder and it constantly feels easy to turn. The downside of that long rocker profile is that it can feel flappy at speed and the contact length of the ski feels pretty short for its length underfoot.

Tester Comments

Nicko Braxton
Good grip on the piste, flappy tips fails to inspire confidence

Responsive and smooth carving on piste, nice solid feel.
