Lacking stability at speed on piste

The reinforced 3D structure focuses the ski mass underfoot creating light weight tips and tails for effortless manoeuvrability and float even in the deepest conditions, boosted as well by the updated air tip 2.0 technology. Combined with a freeride rocker profile, this ski is a dream in the backcountry, and therefore scored highly for both float and versatility. At 96 underfoot the Sky 7 is wide enough to really enjoy the off piste, but not so wide you can't rip some turns on the groomers too.

The carbon alloy matrix is what puts the high definition in the Sky 7 HD. A unique blend of carbon, basalt and glass fibres produce a number of features including balanced flexion, vibration absorption and titanal like strength to improve power, stability and edge hold.

The Sky 7 also features a visco elastomer through the rocker camber transition zone, and the FREE V.A.S. technology further improves the ski's performance in variable snow conditions.

The Sky 7 is reasonably priced for such a high tech freeride ski, especially for intermediate to expert ladies. Our only criticism was the lack of stability when skied more aggressively on firm snow, but this is not surprising with a short effective edge.

The Sky 7 HD a ski that will perform well across the whole mountain, but is most suited to girls who prefer off piste.
