Technical info:
Paramount has an even shorter sidecut radius in the front ski than Impact. It is barely 13.5 m. A short setback would have given some width difference, but the front ski counterbalances this. The rocker in the front raises the ski a little, but it still has an acute angle, a soft tip and a stiff waist. It is heavier than the Impact.

On snow:
This is the best freeride ski we have tried from Norwegian Stereo so far. There are some critical remarks, but the general feedback is that it is a stable big mountain ski which at the same time is relatively easy to maneuver. With Paramount you can go fast down the mountain and have fun in varying conditions. However, there are other skis that combine big mountain properties with better versatility, both in and outside the groomed slopes.
