2010 Kneissl Red Star SC


Pros: Crispy Zingy made sharp hard turns and big wide grins

Cons: I had to give them back

I was in the lucky position to be skiing last week in Tignes with perfect condition and bright sunshine. Then to top it off, Tim of Kneissl UK set up a test tent down at the bar. It was just like a track day for Porsche. I used these babies for about two hours and I didn't want to give them back. They are a racing slalom ski but not too tuff on the legs of an amateur like me. You can’t quite put your finger on what it is about Kneissl skis but whichever flavour you ride on they just seem crispier and zingier than the big brand skis we always hear about. But you can certainly put your finger on what’s these Red Slalom fighter jets! Tim gave me a couple of tips on how to get the best out of them, but it just goes in one ear and out of the other, however after a few runs I cottoned on and found out what he was saying about sliding the sweet spot. I just enjoyed it so much you could crank it over and dig it in for a really tight high G turn then with just a thought about edge change you were over doing the same on the other edge. As I believe skiing is all about posing I knew it just didn’t feel good but it must have looked good too. I went home on the Sally Enduros, and it felt like getting out of a Boxster and driving home in a Golf GTI.
