Stockli Laser CX: new for 2011, a medium-radius, medium energy fronside power carver. Not overly stiff. 69mm underfoot. Length tested: 170cm
This ski was set up with that medium flex plate that Stockli was using, in addition to a demo binding, which brought it quite far off the snow. I took 2 runs on it: first was a bulletproof groomer of manmade snow, and the 2ndwas in some bumps. I surprised that the CX was not all that stiff: softer in flex than other race derived skis I tried (Blizzard SLR IQ and GSR IQ). It packs a wallop, though. This ski is all power and edge hold. Feel is medium energy: you can work the tail for some pop, but it still a fairly damp feel. Edge hold and power are off the charts, and it felt as locked in as any ski I tried, perhaps more. The thing was, I could change the radius of the arc, as it wasn't all that stiff, and wasn't an auto-carver like some of the frontside skis around. Basically, it was as if they took their competition cross ski and softened it 15%. A very unique feel, and it could handle anything I threw at it. It was one of the few skis not to break loose on the really steep pitch, heading down into the village, which by that time of day, was completely scraped clean and hard as a rock. On the CX, I could get aggressive at the top of the turn, gain a bunch of angulation, and leave railroad tracks with confidence. It was a beast, but didn't beat me up. Stability was high, but not quite as high as the SX. What a thrilling carver. In the bumps, it was adequate, but a bit stiff in the tip. Lacking forgiveness, the ski takes any error out on the skier. Workable for a good bump skier, not for a tired bump skier. This is a ski I would own.
