Technical info:
This is a completely symmetrical ski, where the narrowest point is at the waist. It has a long and fairly pronounced sidecut . It has no rocker but a moderate camber from tail to tip. The construction is relatively heavy, but it has the smallest surface area in this category. Generally soft flex.

On snow:
A very stable and playful ski in a traditional design. The ski is suited for the whole park. Because it´s small and symmetrical, the ski struggles a little in loose conditions, but no more than Line Tigershark. For some it might be a surprise that such a seemingly traditional ski can compete with the newer models, but this is a result of well constructed and good skis. The combination of good response, low weight and stability results in a playful and maneuverable park ski.
