“This model enables a skier to face anything that a snowcovered mountain could offer: wide turns, tight turns, moguls, jumps and even unexpected drop-offs. The wide middle section provides added stability in soft and deep snow. With side cut between GS and SL it combines extreme agility with a smooth ride.”
I have been skiing for 18 years now so ski at quite an advanced level and these skis will only really suit advanced skiers. When going slowly or cruising they feel very grabby and nervous but when you get your speed up you are rewarded with a ski that has infinite edge grip, stability and energy that is especially good out of the turn firing you into the next one with awesome power.
They are very much like a full blown GS ski but are slightly easier to use and cope with shorter radius turns and off piste a little better. This however is not their natural habitat and that is flying down any groomed piste very quickly. Overall a superb piste ski that can handle a bit of all mountain skiing.
