They say

Performance meets style. Generates maximum agility in turns and maximum stability at speed

We say

This was one of the lowest priced skis on test. That price point and construction make it more focused on the aspiring carving skier, rather than expert, however it’s one of those skis that can definitely punch above its weight. It’s another ski that somehow manages to pull off the impossible task of being easy and lightweight at slower speeds, but can still deliver a strong performance for carving out high speed turns on hard pistes. It also has really effective dampening, so it feels smooth and judder free on firm snow. This is a responsive, fun ski that feels really accessible for all levels of skier

Tester Comments

Rowena Phillips
Smooth consistent flex, not super stiff but good allrounder. Good enough for 80% of folk, lightweight and easy to use
Llyn Mill
The cheapest ski working out as a top player due to its ease of use. Even though it’s more of a recreational ski it has amazing even edge hold and good dampening
