“Leader of the new ski generation: great on piste performance for multiradius turns.”
They are meant for carving, and to carve properly 3 weeks skiing a year may not be enough unless you were having lessons all the time or at least for a good amount of time.
Having said that – if you do want to learn then these certainly wont make the job harder. They ski like you would expect a high(ish) end piste carver to ski - lots of grip on when banking but have the trademark floppiness I experience with most of Salomons offerings. Maybe my expectations are too high?
Very light, not very stable in a straight line, these need to be skied on their edges. Not that bad in power due to the weight (or lack of it) meaning they are quite versatile.
