Pros: Stiff, good on choppy snow, good on hardpack, floats okay in fresh, stable at speed
Cons: Not a mogul ski, dives a little in powder
This is a pretty kick-ass ski. It's kind of like a really wide GS ski (96mm underfoot.) It's at its most natural going really fast on firmer off-piste snow. It will do short-radius turns, but it has to be muscled a bit and it's not necessarily pretty. Moguls are a lot of work. On groomed slopes, it holds a carve almost as well as my GS skis, but it's definitely slower edge-to-edge. In fresh powder, the nose sometimes dives a little at lower speeds, with the bindings mounted on the factory mark. They're still tons of fun in those conditions, though. I also like skiing among the rocks and trees, and these skis are agile enough for that and wide enough not to sink when I give them a good shove to initiate a turn.
I bought these skis to be my all-conditions ski. I've been loving them for that purpose. I do wish I'd had the binding mounted 1cm back, but I suppose I might whine about the slower turn initiation and less tip control if I did.
