Technical info:
American Liberty has made a sandwich construction with an average specific weight. Genesis has long rocker in the front and a somewhat shorter rocker in the back. In return, the tail is high. It is stiff from the waist and back, but a little softer in the front. A lot of sidecut and a long carve zone results in wide tips.

On snow:
Genesis works alright in the turns. It feels a little heavy on the foot and performs well at moderate speed. It flutters a little at high speed and on hard surfaces. According to our measurements, the tip is softer than the rest of the ski. It performs well in powder and on soft snow in the groomed trails. It handles tracked snow down the slopes surprisingly well. A nice allrounder for those who are not looking for the biggest challenges and prefer to ride outside the pistes.
