They say

The newest generation of crossover skis. Utilizing a revolutionary combination of unidirectional and triaxial carbon with a lightweight  composite wood core and aramid fibres in a sandwich construction

We say

The Slight really stands out in the looks department compared to the majority of skis in this group, when a ski looks this good it really fires you up to ski! The Slight is exceptionally easy to use, particularly in deeper conditions away from the piste it floats up quickly and the soft, light construction make it great fun to ski in these types of conditions. It is very light, and that filters through in that the ski always feels easy to turn with low physical effort required. On hard groomed pistes levels of grip are good, but that lighter construction works against it on hard snow

Tester Comments

Pete Davison
Really strong at smooth turns at slow to medium speeds, starts to lack grip and stability at speed on hardpack
Mark Jones
Really playful, easy to use, brilliant in the pow
