Technical info:
Wolverine Carbon is the lightest model from Norwegian Stereo (the slightly cheaper and heavier Wolverine Mk2 did well in last year´s touring category). It is still relatively heavy in this company. Typical for Stereo it has a long sidecut, with steady 19 metre sidecut radius. It has some camber and a long and low yet pronounced rocker in the front and back. The flex is soft.

On snow:
The test panel is divided about Stereo´s lightest ski. However, as so often before with this brand, we appreciate the stability at speed and how it performs in bigger turns. But the ski has its limits; it gets nervous if you push it too hard, and it is a little difficult to turn in narrow terrain. Wolverine Carbon is a ski for the ski touring freerider who likes long trips and is good at finding the best snow.
