My take: It's a slalom-race-inspired ski for mostly on-piste ripping. Mostly fall-line shorter turns rather than long GS arcs. I haven't been able to find much in the way of reviews on these skis...
I skied the Supershape, and it was Sandwich construction, like a race ski. They were like a toned-down i-SL RD, much softer and more forgiving. Nice ski, but I would want more beef in a high-speed carver. It was probably akin to a modern Atomic SL9: a soft slalom that is a fun hard-snow ski, as long as it isn't pushed too hard.
