They say

Racing power and precision are now more accessible than ever before. The unique design efficiently channels energy for cleaner power transfer. Resulting in effortless spontaneity to roll into and out of carved turns

We say

The new React is one of the new wave of widebodied piste skis. Out of that new group of skis, it feels the most agile from edge to edge and has a powerful, lively character. This is a very strong all rounder that feels fast and grippy in all turn shapes. it works really well on the piste but also has the width that it can easily cope with more chopped up, softer conditions. The shovel of the ski really drives you into the turn while the shape delivers a beautifully sweet arc. The R8 seemed to have zero faults and performed really well in all turns on the groomers and would also have the capability to deal with tricky conditions
