7 / 10
Turning capabilities:
7 / 10
Stability at speed:
8 / 10
Technical info:
Fibreglass sandwich with an extra layer of fiberglass under the waist. The Flipcore-technology makes little difference since the skis have a normal camber. A long, low rocker in the front and back. Relatively short setback. Soft tip and tail which gradually convert into a stiff waist. Shorter sidecut in the waist than towards the tips.

On snow:
A typical freeride ski with good stability at speed. The float could have been a bit better in order to top the list. In return, Gunsmoke charges through most conditions. With this ski you can more or less give full throttle on the whole mountain, and it's not the skis that are going to give in first. Unless you´re a fan of short turns, this ski performs very well on groomed slopes.
