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.

I suppose every company needs to make a ski that can kinda go anywhere but does nothing really well. Solomon is leading the charge when it comes to ski innovation but this thing is at the back of the pack as far as I'm concerned.
I found that it's too soft to hold a really nice edge and at speed the tails were washing out on me. In thicker snow they kind of bog down. You might have fun with a really short pair in the trees because they feel pretty light but I always felt like they were "just kind of there" and got very little feedback from them.
Trading these in for some bbr's at the rental house was the best decision I've ever made.
Happy ripping!
