Technical info:
The ski touring models from Norwegian Stereo usually receive high scores in Fri Flyt´s ski tests, and this was also the case for the fibreglass construction of this model last year. However, this year´s version is a realative light carbon fibre sandwich, and it is the longest ski in the test. It has a long and low rocker profile, even rocker transition, low camber and a soft front ski in an otherwise evenly distributed flex. The setback is moderate. All in all, the technical measurements suggest a very average ski.

On snow:
We thought that it would be heavy, but it´s not. And that´s a compliment! It is trustworthy and very stable at speed. Here you can really ski big turns at high speed. It isn´t quite as impressive at low speed and down narrower lines. However, the total impression is that it is versatile. Stereo Carbon Lynx is a touring ski for the ambitious and heavier freeriders who like long trips and charging down the mountain sides.
