Ski magazine awards

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

FYI and FWIW :
Ski Magazine (a french ... ski magazine) gear reviews issue is on sale.
An interesting issue, as they review lesser known brands like Unic, Black Crows or Titicaca...
They give three kind of award : Overall best, Expert best and All Audience best (ie, intermediates..).

Groomer intermediate (ie 500E max with bindings):
OB : Salomon Aero GT
EB : Atomic Metron 7
AAB : Fischer RX pure heat

OB Volkl Attiva Viento
EB Atomic Royal Minx
AAb K2 One Luv

Groomer performance
OB : Head I supershape magnum
EB Fischer RC4 progressor
AAB Blizzard CMX Pro IQ

OB Nordica Olympia Speed XBS

Race GS
OB Volkl Racetiger GS Racing
EB Fischer RC4 WC GS
AAB Salomon Equipe 2V race

Race SL
OB Nordica Dobermann Pro SL XBi
EB Fischer WC SL
AAB Blizzard SL Magnesium

No awards for the Fat Freeride skis (100mm +). Considering the great variety of programs and designs. But various criterions, like kind of terrain (narrow, wide, steep...), of snow, of skier physical and technical habilities, speed...

My thoughts : Good job Fischer.
And where are the Rossis and Dynastars ?! In a french mag ?

Would love to own some of those Cool Heats. They seem awesome. Thanks for the interesting report, Philippe. That must have taken some time to type that all in.
