Technical info:
From the drawing board in Chamonix, here comes the Slap XL, with a very long narrowing tip. The taper actually has the same length as the rocker, in both ends. Slap XL has quite a lot of sidecut.

On snow:
Despite the long tips with a lot of taper, the long setback and a supportive back ski will help you into the turns. It floats very well, but requires speed and an experienced skier. If you have what it takes, Slap XL offers great absorption and will lead you safely down the mountain. Even though the skis have a relatively short sidecut radius, the test team doesn´t find it particularly easy to turn with.
