Technical info:
According to Amplid this should be a light freeride ski, but in this company they are only moderately light. The design and geometry of this ski is outdated. It neither has rocker nor taper, and the tip is short and abrupt. Fibreglass sandwich, a soft front ski and a stiff back ski. Camber, sidecut and weight are medium. The long carve zone gives a wide tip. The skis don´t have much tail.

On snow:
These are among the better Amplid skis we have tested. Perfectly OK on tracked snow, but can be slow to get on the edge. Some of the test skiers feel it lacks stability, float and playfulness. In other words, we can not promise en ego boost after a trip on these skis. However, if are you looking for a traditional freeride ski you might just have come to the right place.
