Designed for use on-piste only for confident skiers looking for something close to a race ski.
It scored high on our test for both short radius turns and edge hold, but a little lower for high speed stability and long radius turns (165 model).
Still, it’s a fun ski to turn, especially on harder packed groomed slopes and it gives back what you put into it. The response when making slalom style short turns is very good and the longer 175 length does provide more stability at higher speeds and feels more like a GS ski than the 165.
As you would expect, it didn't score so well for snow versatility, but then again that’s not the point of this ski. Would suit a high level skier or instructor that loves the groomed stuff.
