I had a pair of speedwave 12s, fantastic skis. Unfortunatly they bent at the shovel. Apart from that minor problem, which elan attributed to my skiing, they were alot of fun. Good at all speeds and the edge hold was supprisingly good given the stiffness of the ski. The only places where they were not so fun was unsuprisingly soft steep alpine and trees.
I now have the 14s and they are far better, for an agressive skier, I ski them all over the mountain but do try to avoid the trees when I have them on. They work fine in bumps as long as you are agressive and on top of them.
