Technical info:
The carbon fibre in this model is only there for the sake of appearance. The ski is not particularly light, and the tip is not stiffer than normal. Otherwise, there is a very long setback and the narrowest section is far back, which is counterbalanced by the long sidecut radius. The camber is flat.

On snow:
Spur from Blizzard is very similar to a normal big mountain ski, without standing out in any way. Among other things, the test team thinks that it has more taper than necessary. This makes it a little shaky. Otherwise it performs OK. It is perhaps best at speed when the front ski annihilates shock and it moves from edge to edge with ease. Flotation is good.
