They say

Introducing the newest generation of crossover skis. Utilizing a combination of unidirectional and triaxial carbon with a lightweight composite wood core. The Slight will elevate any skiers abilities

We say

The new Slight looks is one of the most striking looking skis that we tested in this group. Like all of the Scotts that we have tested it has the characteristic of maintaining really strong contact with the snow, allowing the skier to feel accurately what’s going on underfoot. On the piste it gives out high levels of grip and is very reactive. In deeper snow it copes well, but felt stiffer in its construction while the relatively narrow 93mm waist gave it less float than it’s rivals. Scott have also launched a 100mm version which would probably make a big difference in this regard.
