They say

Best versatile backcountry ski: agile, light…playfull

We say

The Menace is another freeride ski which feels geared up for strong skiers. It’s very powerful underfoot and can give out hefty amounts of grip, even in hardpack conditions. It feels a supremely well balanced ski, you can feel the power under your feet, but it doesn’t feel overly driven by the tip or the tail. It doesn’t have a super radical sidecut, in fact they feel quite straight, but this gives the Menace advantage in that it’s really easy to adjust through the turn and gives it a real sense of playfulness

Tester Comments

Mark Jones
Solid underfoot, not too much sidecut which makes them easy to adjust. Well balanced, really enjoyed it!
Dougie Mill
Feels good for on piste carving, tails felt catchy and difficult to pivot
