Technical info:
This new model from Norwegian water ski manufacturer Stereo Skis has a soft back ski and a stiff front ski. The Sonorous is a powder ski with more taper behind than in front, which in combination with the short turning radius gives a great width difference between the front and back. The turning radius is shortest at the waist. A broad waist combined with a lot of sidecut, moderate taper and long length gives a very wide tip. It comes with camber and an early rise tail. The weight is average.

On snow:
The newcomer Stereo Sonorous is a distinctive twintip ski with a huge tip. It feels relatively heavy, which might be down to the large, old-school tip construction. If leg strength isn’t your forte, you should perhaps try another model. That being said, the Sonorous is surprisingly easy to maneuver, and is nimble and stable at speed. It is best suited for powerful skiers who want to attack the mountain with all they’ve got.
