We say

The Navigator got some great feedback from the test team, this is a truly versatile all mountain ski. On the piste it feels solid, grippy and seems to be really effective at carving out any type of turn, the shape is reactive without feeling like it’s taking too much charge through the turn. This is a relatively, light, wide ski, but its performance on the piste is right up there. Away from the groomed runs it floats up quickly and instantly feels very playful and just great fun in all conditions. Overall this really is a superb all mountain ski which manages to get the right balance between piste performance and backcountry capability.

Tester Comments

Mark Jones
Great all mountain ski! Really adaptable in all conditions, shovel draws you nicely into the turn.
Pete Davison
A real dream to ski all over the mountain, light but has loads of life. Floats well in the crud yet rips at speed.
