Technical info:
Majesty´s Supernova is brand new this year. We tested a pair with very light bindings. Unlike previous models from the same brand, the shape and flex are now similar to the other skis in this category. The specific weight of 0.92 makes this the heaviest construction in the test, by far. The mounting point is quite far at the back and this gives a lot of front ski. There is a lot of rocker in the front, no rocker in the back, and the flex is fairly stiff in the back ski. There is also quite a lot of camber in the back.

On snow:
The heaviest construction in the test was mounted with a very light binding. This works well on easier surfaces. It works best at speed and big turns, which is typical for a ski with an even flex and a turning radius of just above 20 metres. The back ski is stiff and has no camber, which contributes to a front ski that flutters and poor maneuverability on hard surfaces. At the same time, a long setback and rocker in the front means that Majesty Supernova is a good powder ski. This model is a good choice if you already are a fan of Majesty and not too concerned about weight, and want a predictable touring ski that is best on soft snow at high speed.

This sequence of numbers indicates stiffness. Each number corresponds to a part of the ski, from tail to tip. 5 equals the average
for this part and length of the ski. Lower values indicate softer skis, higher values stiffer.
