Technical info:
This is the second version of Norwegian Stereo´s piste ski. It has inherited a lot from the first model, but the camber is a little different. The camber is average, and it is a little stiffer in the front ski. Considering this test selection, the weight is average. It has quite a lot of rocker in the front, considerably less rocker in the back.

On snow:
The new edition of Piste reminds us a lot of its predecessor. This is a piste ski that works well in long, carved turns. It feels solid and predictable, but doesn’t quite compete with the best models in this test. Piste V2 is not best at anything, but it isn´t particularly bad at anything either. Stereo´s piste ski suits those who like to tie long arcs together down the groomed trails.
