Good lift in softer snow.
The ski left us underwhelmed when pushed.

Movement says its Fly Two skis are "ultra-playful" and the Swiss company has certainly played around with the range for the new season.

Gone is the 125mm width version, replaced with a more all-mountain friendly 95, leaving 115 and 105 as the other options.

Movement has reduced the rocker in the nose of the Fly 105 this year and it is more stable than the previous model, but that is not saying much as last season's offering was something of a shocker, and it remains a bit of a bucking bronco.

But the new profile does offer great float in softer conditions, as you would expect from a ski 105mm wide. Its tip is nice for the variable conditions and it enters into the turn with ease.

Light and manoeuvrable does not necessarily equate to thrilling and unfortunately the Fly Two 105 is a bit on the dull side when skied, and lacks grip when you return to the piste.

One of our testers was surprised at how little happened when you pressed into the ski through the turn, saying the Fly Two 105 "lacks any life and just dies".

Despite some welcome changes, the Fly Two 105 is still a less secure ski than most of its rivals in the freeride category but it may suit a certain type of skier.
