Strenghts:
Easy to ride, really nice in the off-piste and surprising in the piste. Gets like the train over small puckles and spring skins

Weaknesses:
QUALITY !! Broke my layers after maybe 10 days, cracked them behind the tie when I drove on a puck in the piste. Did not get any new warranty! A month later, a friend broke his nose.

Summary:
A really nice ski slicker lighter than a narrow birch under the storm Gudrun. Too bad to move the production to China! If it were not for it, it would have a 5a

Riding style: Pillows or what is on offer

Strenghts:
A really good ski outside the piste. Looks really no way to buy broader skis because it's great to go for half a mile pillows with these. Have been on these for 1½ month and am really satisfied. Be already aware that they are most likely to be good outside the piste but in my surprise, the skis were also better than expected in the piste. The edge grip is okay, although the slopes are slightly hollow.

Weaknesses:
The only sad thing about these skis is that they are a little heavy if you're going to spin a bit, but it's mainly because I'm not a jibb machine!

Summary:
A very good all around ski that focuses on off-piste skiing.

Strenghts:
This year's model is really good! Has found a ski that flows well but still can handle quick turns in the piste if it is not too hard. Running on previous year models and the year's flows are as good as before but are wiser in the turns.

Weaknesses:
May be a bit unstable in high piles in the piste on hard surfaces. Bad ice grip but who expect ice grip of a skirt over 100mm in the waist?

Summary:
I go a lot, seasons in the Alps, go outside the slopes when there is an opportunity. At last it's snowy and the skis have been confessed with color. Fits riders who go offpist but may not have the prerequisites to go to the bottomless pillows every day.
One of the best in this class, really good skiing. Thank you Völkel.

Strenghts:
The skid feels cool, compassionate and reliable in all bowels, the edge grip was good on ice, while it floated well in pillows after the welcome dumped in Åre. They are easy to handle despite the length and width and worked very well in woods and gutters. Good speed stability on open surfaces and they allow higher speed without disappointing in any way. I did not feel that the ski restricted me in the ride during the days I have driven the skis so far.

Weaknesses:
I experienced it as boring to drive on a clean cut (ie no cord) in the piste. Feel that I would need very much speed and very little people on the hill to get something out of it with these skis. Therefore, it was a good fortune that Åre offered a decade of new snow during the week, so that the ski could be tested in its correct element

Summary:
When I first got home these skis and felt at home in the living room, I was a little worried that they would be hard and uncomfortable to go on. After spending a few days in varying before, but especially in pillows, these doubts are completely blown away. This is a versatile ski, without being known as a compromise. I'll come back later on how quality and durability are, and how they work to jump or drop.

Riding style: Allkeepers who prefer offpiste

Strenghts:
really like this year's gotama! they have gotten to the lines really well! this year it turns lighter and smoother than before! stiffness suited me perfectly! they have lost the feeling of two big planks underneath the feet!
wider front and back giving more fluidity! and floats do them!
Of course, it works well in the piste as long as you get up!

Weaknesses:
Even though the plank has disappeared, Gotaman feels a bit more plastic than before! and a little pity is that the "square" tail is removed! The ski gets an impression of working built to go to the park! and that's not the right purpose for this big moutain ski.

Summary:
I go about 4-6 weeks a year! and keep me mostly out of the piste. I have previously been to Gotama 04 and 06. and I definitely think they made progress with the development!
it is a ski slope built for large mountains of beautiful forest skiing and even backcountry jumps. a really good mix of what you need outside the piste!
