Fun ski with lots of energy, can be skied slow and mellow without much effort, will make two footed carves but really loves you to stand on the down hill ski and hang on, this skis come alive when you load them up. Put them on edge and point the tips down the fall line and hang on, they accelarate like a race ski, which they are. Good edge hold but I think with a proper race tune could have better hold. They were fine for me in mellow bumps, I found them to stiff for tight deep bumps. I fellow bear said "he could see they didn't flex in the bumps like my AX3's". I'm sure young legs could handle them fine in the bumps.
They didn't seem to mind lots of speed. It's so cold here I didn't want to risk frost bite doing high speed cruisers for very long.

I own a pair. They are highly tune sensitive. Not razor sharp and they are truly awful.
