Technical info:
Light construction with fibreglass sandwich and a lacquered surface. Lack of taper gives wide tips. Long rocker also in the back ski. It reminds us a little bit of Nordica Helldorado, which won the freeride test. The skis have a pronounced tail. Relatively stiff back ski, with a soft tail. The rocker sections are flat, with abrupt transitions.

On snow:
Supertonic is great is a great allrounder that works well on any surface - perfect for powder and big mountain skiing. A super stable model for big mountains and hard skiing. This is definitely best suited for the freerider, and not the groomed slope cruiser.
