Comments: Skied the Superspeed in very variable snow conditions at Grand Targhee, WY. The hill had just gotten blasted by 60+ mph winds the night before and there was either 0" or 24" of very dense snow. On the groomed, the Superspeeds would do just about any turn I wanted, short, medium, or long radius. It reminded my alot of the 6 Star, but with a longer turn radius. If I wanted to, I could make Slalom turns with it, or I could go 50+ mph. I the crud, I really needed to work the ski to get through it, but this was because of the snow conditions (the only thing that was working was the Gotama's). After figuring out the sweet spot for the ski in the crud, it ski great. The ski flexes much stiffer than the 6 Star and you really have to stay on it. I will be skiing it again next week, hopefully in much better snow conditions. When I do, I'll post more.
