They say

Vantage is our best selling all mountain ski. The versatile, all conditions ski for ripping around the resort, bashing through powder and everything in between

We say

The Vantage is very easy to pivot, its lightweight really helps in its ability to make maneuvering at slower speeds absolutely effortless, this makes it an easy companion in backcountry conditons. However, it also has the capability to develop grip on harder snow, put the Vantage on an edge and it can hold the arc well for this type of ski. It does have an upper limit, but can cope with carved turns on the groomers really well. Overall, this is a well balanced, light ski that can work well in all conditions

Tester Comments

Eilidh McLeod
Very easy to pivot, light and playful. Great ski for skiing all conditions
Llyn Mill
A strong ski despite the light weight. The flex is even and the flex in the tip should cope well with deeper snow
