Technical info:
The new Devastator has a powerful fibreglass sandwich. It comes without taper, but has a long, low rocker in the front and back ski. The camber is flat. A short setback gives quite symmetrical measurements, despite a long carve zone. The tip and tail are equally high.

On snow:
Several of the test riders compared this ski to older freeride models. This is in other words a straightforward allrounder which is not particularly good in powder or on the trail. You can feel the long carve zone below the feet, which doesn´t make the Devastator the most playful ski on the mountain. In total, if you are looking for a predictable allrounder without the latest ski technology features, this ski works just fine.
