Technical info:
4FRNT first launched MSP as a park and powder ski. However, this year´s model is a aluminum reinforced piste orientated ski. This sandwich construction is the heaviest in the category. MPS has little rocker and a long sidecut. Average stiffness, with a somewhat softer tip. It has a lot of sidecut and it is the shortest ski in the test.

On snow:
Our test ski was short, but MSP has a fairly flat tail, so it doesn´t feel too short. Here you get playfulness and turnability, and the edge grip is good. The flotation is decent considering the length, but it would be interesting to test a longer version. Some experienced it as a little unstable at high speed. Having said that, it performs very well in medium turns and it´s a joy down through the woods. A very good allrounder.
