Technical info:
A fibreglass sandwich from Norwegian Stereo. The sidecut radius is quite short, and the long rocker in the front ski concludes without a bended tip, which gives an acute angle in the forward direction. Relatively soft flex. The sidecut has changed a lot from the model we tested last year. From having 13mR in the front ski, the sidecut is now evenly distributed. The setback has also been moved forward about 5 cm, which makes it carve smoother in the turns.

On snow:
A big mountain ski with a striking long and flat rocker tip. This is not a playful ski, but it likes high speed in powder. Several test riders experienced it difficult to ski smooth turns with. It’s worth mentioning that our test pair came with an uneven edge and base - the final tuning was lacking. A ski that charges straight forward at high speed, and one that really ploughs the powder.
