Technical info:
Last year´s winner Hoji W has lost weight. Almost a quarter of a kilo per ski is a lot! The ski is also slightly softer in the entire length. This model has the longest sidecut radius in the whole test. In return, it has a lot of rocker.

On snow:
This was a clear favorite last year. This year´s model is softer and considerably lighter, which makes it much better suited for touring purposes. But this has had its negative effects. Several of the test riders complained about fluttering, and it’s not a clear favorite on groomed trails. However, the team agrees that it floats well, but it demands an experienced skier. Summed up, this is a model for those who know what they want – skiing off-piste at high speed.
