Pros: old school racer cross ski; very versatile; I use this ski in all conditions - bumps, trees, powder. Love the white, simple graphics.
Cons: durability of top sheet, retail price
Top sheet damages easily; there is an aluminum 45 degree "edge protector" built into the top sheet but when cut by the ski edges, it only makes the damage worse. These are my go-to skis, love them and have purchased four pairs. The 2010 model has been retired and replaced by 2012 and 2014 models. Reading other external advertisement reviews make this ski sound like a full-on GS race ski and to be avoided by 99% of skiers...that is just wrong. Maybe in today's world of fat skis and poor technique, but these are the best skis that I have ever owned and I have over twenty pair of other skis in my backyard storage shed.
