Technical info:
The long setback and large amount of sidecut gives an enormous width difference between front and back. Due to the asymmetrical rocker tip, it has a right and a left ski.

On snow:
Piste ski with a defined right and left ski. It is smooth without being too responsive - it is for example not close to being as responsive as Kästle. It feels a little short on the foot and it is a little too aggressive in the turns for our taste. But the advantage with this ski is that it responds even if you don´t have a very active style. You don´t have to apply a lot of force to get smooth turns. All in all a light piste ski that is easy to maneuver.
