The Good: Turn initiation, short swing turns
The Bad: Long turns, stability

 

Verdict: A responsive ski for skiers who wanted to make quick turns in groomed terrain, the Waveflex 12 features a reassuring ease of initiation that almost leaps from arc to arc. It was easily overpowered at high speeds, and seemed to give up stability as the pace increased.
