Scott Crusade 2011 Ski Review

With it’s VTT tip and tail, Scott’s Crusade is an odd looking ski shape.

Manufacturer's Description

“The Quiver Forever” - Wide body a short side cut. A light construction combined with venturi tip & tail allows to perform on groomed slopes and fly over in deep snow. The Crusade makes you to ride everywhere without compromise.

Ski Review's Verdict:

I skied a 179. The Crusade handles short turns well, engaging easily and wide arcs are fine.

The ski is has the venturi (VTT) tip and tail with a bump on the tip and tail - imagine you pressed the skis, base first into a hot tennis ball sized lump to give you additional surface area and lift. The images here do not do it justice, because the “bump” in the ski in enhanced on the tops are made to look more protruding than they actually are using shading, but effectively you have an alternative to rocker via the float friendly shape and yet still cranks out turns on the pistes and groomers.

Great all mountain tool, felt adept all over the mountain.

Ski Review: I skied a 179cm Scott Crusade during the 2011 winter at Perisher in Australia. The crusades are the best most versatile all mountain ski I have ever skied. They handled all snow conditions and terrain with unbelievable ease- ice, hard packed, groomed, deep and heavy, slush, powder (although I only had a chance to ski 10-20cm deep powder) and bumps. They are very fast edge to edge doing short turns but also blitz big radius high speed turns with excellent stability. Their edge grip on ice is fantastic and never felt as if they would let go. The big surprise was how great they were through big bumps on steep terrain- they never missed a beat and considering their wide tip and tails never felt like catching (unlike other narrower skies I have tried). They feel light and nimble but will break through crud effortlessly.  They are a seriously fantastic ski that get better the harder you push them.
