Technical info:
American Liberty has got a new importer in Norway. Origin 106 is a fibreglass sandwich with relatively low specific weight. It is characterised by lot of rocker in the front and back, but sidecut in the entire length. This implies that there is a big difference between where the taper and rocker starts. Even flex with soft tips. High tail.

On snow:
Liberty Origin 106 clearly stands out in this test for its playfulness. The short area below the foot makes it easy to maneuver and skid with. If you want a purebred piste ski that let´s you tie long arcs together, other models in the test are better. Genesis tends to get a little shaky at high velocity, and the edge grip isn´t superb either. But if you want to have fun when skiing (and who doesn´t?), you should check this one out. Genesis 106 is fun on many different types of surfaces.
