Technical info:
This years’ model has become considerably more playful compared to the one we tested last year. The ski is a lot lighter and softer. It is a couple of millimeters narrower and there is more sidecut. In addition, it has more taper, rocker and a proper bend in the tail.

On snow:
It has become less of freeride ski. Maneuvers well on hard surfaces, but it is a little too narrow for off-piste shenanigans. It handles moderate speed, but becomes less stable at high speed. Maybe it´s because the ski is too soft? This is a ski best suited for the groomed trails and controlled turns. It is also a good choice for lighter women, as the ski is soft and narrow.
