We found the El Capo slightly hard to handle during our 2013 on snow ski test, but it would suit a strong and athletic freeride skier who wants a tough ski to blast through all types of snow.

A versatile freeride ski that’s designed to handle groomed runs with ease and rip off-piste on a powder day.

We found long, fast turns on hard packed pistes worked well, but they were a little damp on the shorter turns compared to other skis in this category. Off-piste in the variable conditions that we tested them in, they handled well, although again weren’t quite as lively as some of the other models we tested.

They are a good solid performer without being spectacular and would suit a strong expert skier who’s perhaps larger than average in size – this is where they would come into their own.

The El Capo is a strong, tough ski that will take the weight of a larger skier and provide stability and strength. Lighter skiers might just feel that they don’t respond well enough.
