Technical info:
US-based Fat’ypus come to the test with the biggest ski measured in surface area and width, by far. Despite the low specific weight it still weighs over 2.5 kilos. A lot of sidecut and a wide waist results in enormous tips, despite the long taper.

On snow:
This is another ski that attracts attention. For most of the test riders this was a new record in width below the foot. And yes, you certainly float! At the same time there is an awful lot of ski below your foot. The waist width will force you to adjust your skiing technique. Not like DPS, where you have to change your technique completely, but because you have to take into account how your knees absorb the force. This is a very wide ski with a lot of sidecut, and you will notice this in your legs. On the one hand we would have liked to see an even more radical design on such a wide ski. On the other hand, if you want a very wide and otherwise plain ski, you should consider this one.
