For ladies who like to 'launch'... themselves down the mountain, the flair is certainly going to light their way, whatever speed they fancy ramping things up to.
There's a powerful feel to the turns that the steel sidewall seems to enhance, but despite the aggressive nature of the skis, they are easy to turn at low speeds too, making them suitable for skiers looking to start off with a ski and grow better and more confident with it. As you'd expect from a Volkl, the edge grip on groomed and hard-pack snow is fantastic and in short turns, the response is super quick. You don't need to hang around in the long radius turns either, these skis are made to go fast, just hold on tight and let them run.
But it's not only a piste machine - at 78mm underfoot, take them off-piste and they won't let you down. Of course they have limitations, they are not a freeride ski, but if you like playing in the powder when it's there at lower speeds then they are perfectly adequate.
They are not as comfortable in the moguls as some of the skis in the all-mountain category, possibly due to their slightly stiffer construction, but a good skier who can ski the bumps anyway, won't have too much trouble.
An exciting all-mountain ski that the manufacture says is 100% on-piste and 10% off-piste - normally they tend to overestimate the off-piste capabilities of a ski, but in this case, we think they're done the Flair a disservice.
