Technical info:
Liberty is a name we have come to associate with extreme models. Talking about big skis, they don’t come much bigger than Genome and Mutant. Variant is a far more level-headed ski what size concerns. It is stiff, and is also one of the broadest models in this category. The camber is flat and short taper gives a long sidecut. Rocker in front, less at the tail and a low tip.

On snow:
Variant is a solid and stable ski that performs well in soft snow. At the same time, we think it is a bit tame. It doesn’t invite playing around on the slope or in the woods. The tips tend to flutter on groomed slopes, which leads to worsened grip. Liberty Variation floats relatively well in powder and is a good alternative if you want an allround ski for cruising fresh snow.
