The Dobermann Spitfire Ti has once again been reviewed by our team during the 2015 on-snow test in Austria - but does it live up to its 'fighting talk' style name?

Overall Score

This ski has become a bit of a classic in the high performance on-piste category and as its name implies, you're in for a 'Battle of Britain' style ride once you step on-board.

In the case of the Dobermann Spitfire Ti, its bark does live up to its bite too - it's a strong and powerful ski suiting aggressive skiers who know how to carve their turns at the very highest speeds.

But they are not very forgiving, especially if you're after an afternoon stroll in the park on a Sunday afternoon. There's no point in owning these skis unless you intend to use them as designed - a bit like a Ferrari on the A30, pointless.

The various lengths alter the turn radius that suits GS turns more than the shorter slalom variety, but even at the length we tested (168) they are versatile enough to handle quick, snappy turns providing your technique can cope.

Some testers found them hard to handle and unforgiving, especially at lower speeds - but if you're prepared to put in the time then this serious ski is also a lot of fun to ride.

The woodcore with Titanium top sheet provides the skis torsional stiffness and they have designed them with a slalom style tip, with their 'CamRock' rocker and a GS body from the waist down, giving the skis their versatility in both short and long turns.
