Technical info:
A soft aluminium ski with a lot of sidecut and soft flex. The ski has a fairly symmetrical construction and it has the qualities of a park ski.

On snow:
Gaucho is an allrounder from 4Frnt, a cross between piste and park. It is versatile, but doesn´t stand out in any way. It is a little easier to maneuvre than Kye from the same brand - it´s easier to handle and to turn with. At the same time it is not among the most riding orientated in the test as it lacks responsiveness. Summed up, this is an allrounder which doesn´t stand out in any way. It is best suited for beginners.
