Targeted at advanced and expert skiers, the Koa 84 is nevertheless remarkably easy to turn and would suit an intermediate rider who is looking to start skiing the whole mountain, including off-piste terrain.
The 84mm under-the-boot width ensures versatility on groomed slopes with the ability to make both short and long radius carving turns with a strong edge grip.
On piste the Koa 84 is easy to use and performs well, although sometimes gets a little flappy when short turning on the ice and at speed.
In the powder it is fun, light and easy to use, making it perfect for aspiring all-mountain ladies who want to get off-piste.
The Koa's freeride rocker means easy turn initiation on groomed slopes and extra float in powder. The binding mount is slightly further forward than usual providing energy saving skiing that's tailored to a woman's body shape.
Potential downsides? Limited for aggressive advanced skiers who like to charge around, but a good all-round ski that would also suit an instructor teaching recreational level classes.
