Technical info:
The complex use of materials is striking: a sandwich consisting of aluminium, fibreglass and carbon fibre. The purpose of using carbon fibre might be to adjust to the market rather than making a well balanced ski - this ski is certainly not among the lightest. Otherwise a fairly modern geometry, lots of taper in both ends and long rocker. The ski has a flat camber. It´s stiff from the back to the waist, with a soft tip.

On snow:
This model was well received by the test team. It is a classic big-mountain ski which is stable at high speed, and you clearly notice that it has a relatively long sidecut radius. At the same time it is easy to slow down with. It is not particularly playful, and one test rider commented that it didn’t absorb shock too well. However, the total impression is that this is a fantastic big-mountain ski that is both extremely stable and maneuverable.
