They say

Thanks to its full wood core and a perfect compromise for rigidity and flex, its always ready to engage into the turn, whatever the conditions.

We say

The Roxy is a light ski with a soft, forgiving flex. Within this category it felt like one of the more easier skis to use with a near zero effort turn initiation and always having the ability to adjust out of the arc of the turn if needed. It’s a ski that is definitely more focused on the recreational end of ability and would be an easy to use, fun ski for someone still at the learning stages. Once the speeds are ramped up and the ski is set up for carving it starts to struggle with a lack of stability and edge grip which would make the skier back off, that light weight and soft flex also gets knocked around when trying to blast through chopped up conditions

Tester Comments

Hannah Luke
A light ski with a soft flex that’s easy to turn. However ask for any performance from them and they become less predictable.
Rowena Phillips
Soft flexing, light ski for the more recreational skier.
