Edge to edge, this ski gives back so much energy it’s silly. The light poplar core, coupled with a rubber dampening system and thick sidewalls, make for a vibration-free ride. It loves to go fast and is stable and smooth at high speeds. The early rise tip, 3 millimeters of camber underfoot, and flat, soft rockered tail allow for easily initiated and powerful turns. The harder I pushed them, the more power I felt. They railed when I wanted them to but were buttery where I needed it, allowing me to turn on a dime and ditch speed quickly.
