Technical info:
This is a classic Stöckli construction with burnished aluminum. Despite it being one of the heavier skis in this year’s test, it was delivered to us with a tech binding. It is a little heavier than the version we tested four years ago. Stormrider 95 features medium flex with a somewhat softer tip and a relatively long sidecut. It has a small amount of low rocker.

On snow:
While all the other brands strive for lightness, Stöckli sticks to the concept of making heavy skis. This is even heavier than its predecessors, and it clearly stands out from the rest of the models in the test. It feels very firm on groomed surfaces. Once you get going and find the right rhythm, it performs very well. It also feels solid off-piste. This is not because of floatation; it feels more like a tanks that charges through the snow. A good choice if you want an allrounder that demands something of the rider.
