They say

From first chair to last, the Santa Ana delivers serious fun. Crafted for women who ski the entire mountain, it provides a smooth and powerful ride

We say

This ski fits well in the expert category for piste skis. It looks smart, eye catching and matches this up to a strong performance. The Sentra is very stable at speed with solid edge hold, while the even flex gives it a strong platform through the arc. Compared to a lot of the other skis we tested in this group it’s more of a heavy duty ski with extra weight and heft moving it into the turn, however, once on the edge it gives a very powerful performance. It’s not the easiest ski to use at slower speeds, but in longer faster arcs it’s a truly rewarding ski

Definitely an expert ski, great edge hold at high speeds. I pushed it to the limit and got great reactions back
Llyn Mill
Not as versatile as other skis in this category, but very stable at speed, fits well as an expert ski
