They say

A true all mountain ski with real hardpack performance. An 84mm waist combined with a titanal frame construction provides a strong platform to stand on when conditions get variable

We say

The new Lowride gives out an amazingly smooth ride, this is combined with a super powerful construction which makes for a solid, strong performance. For its width it gives out massive levels of edge grip and is capable of smashing through any conditions in front of it. Although it’s powerful it is also incredibly sensitive underfoot and you can really feel what’s happening though the middle of the ski. It’s a heavy ski, which would make it an awesome crudbuster, but that heavyweight, combined with the generous width makes it more of a handful at slower speeds

Super stiff and loves to charge fast.Slower response in slush and variable conditions
