They say

Instant access to the perfect turn. Built on a powerful sandwich construction and super charged with the new edge amplifier system, the S/Max 10 will have you laying down fast, precise turns from day one

We say

The new S Max has a very strong range of abilities. At slower speeds it’s easy to use, with a smooth, relatively soft flex that allows for effortless turn initiation and easy adjustment. When the speed is cranked up they give a lot back and were really impressive with the amount of edge grip and power that could put out through the turn. Underfoot they are very strong and can be pushed on with confidence when it comes to harder snow conditions. Overall this is a ski that can handle anything the skier throws at it and is really adaptable for all levels

Tester Comments

Eilidh McLeod
Great ski, very stable at all speeds. Stiff underfoot but lighter tip and tails make it easy to manoeuvre on all terrain
Llyn Mill
This ski gave back everything that you put in. Responds to both an aggressive or a softer approach predictably and smoothly
