Need more stiffness
I?ll be the first to admit that I was not skiing these in the snow conditions they were made for. They did ok in the soft snow and then it was a lot of work to deal with everything else. They got banged around a bit due to lack of mass. Similar story on hardpack where the chatter was non stop. They did ok in the softer snow and in tighter spaces as they were light enough to turn quickly but again for the dimensions and the weight there are better options that are stiffer and handle that stuff better. The Nanatuq seems to be the better variable ski in this line.
