Technical info:
Majesty really wants to make its mark with Hypernaut. The very stiff construction has a lot of carbon fibre. The boat-shaped tip is the widest in the test, by far, and it features a split-tail. Hypernaut has a long setback and the mounting is quite far at the back. Very long rocker in the front, no rocker in the tail.

On snow:
Oh yes! We have never tested a ski with so many visible design features. But more striking is what you can’t see - it is stiff and can be difficult to maneuver. Once you get it going, this wide ski floats well. However, due to its stiffness it can sink in powder. We experienced it as unstable. This might be due to the lack of rocker in the back. Now and then it floats very well, but this is very unpredictable. It is also not among the best on tracked snow. But, if you gain some speed in powder and lean backwards, the tip appears. This is a ski for those who want this year´s widest tip.
