What a surprise. I thought this ski would do well at the demo tent but that nobody would be buying it because it looks too goofy to perform. Now I'm thinking of picking some up.
I've never ridden a ski that carves better on hardpack. Powder is a dream. And blasting through heavy snow and chop is effortless.
Most aggressively shaped is seem to waffle around and chatter because they are always looking for an edge but these feel as stable on the straight shots as they do anywhere else. The only thing I found tough was turn initiation in tight moguls but that might just be me sucking at it.
If you are truly looking for a do it all ski. This is the one.
