Technical info:
French APO has created a park ski that technically reminds us of the planks people used 10 years ago. There is no rocker or symmetrical form. This is a sandwich ski with a fairly narrow waist, an even sidecut radius and some setback. A fairly high weight should vouch for a solid construction. The flex in the back ski is soft. It´s worth mentioning that the skis were tested with a fairly heavy binding.

On snow:
“A classic jib ski” is the first comment. The test team feels at home on these skis. They are playful, responsive and good on rails. But the soft back ski comes at a price. Landing in the back seat is not recommended, and it’s not for the heavily built. If you are looking for a ski that covers the whole mountain, move on to the next model. This is a pure park ski for the ones who appreciate a soft back ski.
