Technical info:
Der Seeker from Icelantic has a stiff tail that transforms into a soft tip. A traditional camber is combined with rocker up front. The tail has no rocker or curvature. The characteristic feature of this ski is the setback (25 cm) which is the biggest in the test. This gives a large difference in width between tip and tail, despite the large turning radius. The test skis were mismatched, we measured marked differences in radius.

On snow:
With Der Seeker beneath you feet you’ll be heading straight for the powder. This is a ski with long tips for big turns. It is not so easy to maneuver in tight situations and you will be skidding into the turns on groomed trails. We don't think Icelantic has hit bull's eye here, but experienced riders can learn how to handle the skis and enjoy their stability.
