It's hard not to make a play on the name of this ski when reviewing it as by most accounts, it's a total joy to ski.

'Light done right' indeed. What these skis have saved in weight they have gained in strength and performance,' said one of our testers.

There's a lot of technology in these skis. A split core - koroyd and graphene that uses a honeycomb construction - saves weight without losing on strength.

This makes them a little higher on price, but performance both on and off piste is excellent.

They have some limitations though and according to one of our testers, they are 'pretty beefy and hefty in short turns on groomed runs, but felt more fun and lively off-piste. Great for smashing through crud too'.

For advanced female skiers looking to improve their carving performance with a tool that handles the variable off-piste terrain well, they would make the perfect ski.
