The Lotus 120 is for the best days. Access new levels of creativity and style; slash wave features, side-slide into airs, and generate power and style in big trips across the fall line.

Strenghts:
 The weight, the stiffness, the dimensions, and that nobody has the same ... ;-)

Weaknesses:
Same as Niklas takes up, Sidewall seems fragile, but they seem to hold ... And the porous sound if you release them on hard surfaces. Certainly different!

Summary:
This has to be one of the world's 3 best puderskidor, no snack! It's so terribly wonderful to have and do with it so it's incredible. On the hill up the hill it is much easier than any other ski, even though I threw on a pair of STH16, which def. not easy, they weigh much less than any other combinations the poles have.

When it starts to go down, it really does not matter what kind of snow you go on, some cushions are the funniest, but you can really have fun in a soft-cut offpiste (this is really great with the stiffer tailors!) And in a soft chest too. If it does not matter, it does not take many meters before you notice the wonderful calm of the ski and longing for speed. You can feed on really much and just lay and enjoy great nice turns, the ski delivers!
After a while, one might approach a forest, and then the next nice property will come. The turns! You can push down the turning radius really well with these, lean your body, push to, feel the tail work around and tip up to look up the hill! Check Noilo's photo album for proof of image!

Then I have to mention speed stability in piste, yes, you have to try it too. The boards are quite good, they are soft, but the tail is stiff and nice. Point the skis down the drop-down, find out some dragged puckles and be prepared for magic. The boards pass over, but you lean the skis a bit to the edge, so the rest of the ski runs straight through.

Quick version: This ski is best, buy!

Strenghts:
The ease
design
The price

Weaknesses:
Is a little skeptical about sidewalls in bamboo. No big problems so far, but I'm skeptical ...

The "planky" sound when you encounter hard surfaces. Sounds odd. However, does not matter ...

Summary:
Lord races what a ski! I'm completely saved! The idea was to use these as a pillow fitting, but I have used them both in pillows and mixed conditions.

What I like most with the lotus is versatility, it is optimized for pillows, but delivers to 100% in roughened and crowded.
In cushions the tank is labeled with pintail directly, the tail always drops well and the tip is always over the snow. It is among the most stable I went on (190cm, flex3 = rigid), however, I have to say that it is extremely playful and does not require much power to get in a tight turn. (Check out my photo album) Can not say that the ease of anything is at a disadvantage, do not know that it would make the ski unstable.

What amazes most is how good the ski is in a soft piste. (Yes, you heard right). The lotus is a soap cup in hard pist, but not worse than anything else in this width. But in a soft piste, kind of a bit of snowy spring snow, it feels 46 meters radius without a span like a 20-meter radius. Hardly riding, but still funny.

In short, I think this is a great skiing, I am sick with my couple.
