The Curated Take
This is a really popular ski so I was excited to put them to the test. I got a couple good runs at Snowbasin Utah in March and got to try them in some different snow conditions. On piste they did really well, solid edge hold, quick and easy to turn. In the moguls they fared alright, not the best but not a problem either. They also did decently in the trees and fresh snow, but any more snow than the couple inches that I was skiing and they would sink. Not a powder ski, but solid versatility for a 90mm wide ski. Overall I loved how forgiving they were, I felt confident and at ease in turns and transitioning from turn to turn. I only got nervous when I got going a bit fast and put a lot of pressure into the skis, they weren't quite stiff enough for super aggressive skiing or larger skiers. A beginner to intermediate skier looking to adventure all over the mountain would have a great time on these.
- Easy to turn
- Not stable at top speeds
- Not wide enough for much floatation in fresh snow
- Not stiff enough for aggressive skiers
