Strenghts:
incredibly light, soft but still twisty, sick good flow in the loose nose, works really well to shorten the piste when it's hard and icy, good edge grip. Because the tie is almost center mounted, the skid becomes very easy to handle, except that the long backs tend to be in the way sometimes.

Weaknesses:
a little carv, a bit difficult to get rid of if you like long turns in the piste, definitely not impossible, but it's not a straight hug, a ski that requires you to grind your carving technique if you want to carve fat in the piste.

Summary:
really fun and special skiing that makes many look on the hill. However, it is not quite unexpectedly best in the offpiste, where it is really good. Thanks to its softness, it will be easy and easy to handle on any kind of surface, it also swells roughness very well. Overall a really cool ski that surprises and requires a bit of the rider to give maximum dividends!

Riding style: Most offpiste with these, also have pistons, run some skiing tours as well

Strenghts:
incredibly beautiful, with the perfect gorge of landing fakie! The skid also moves in incredibly well in the powder as in the piste.

Weaknesses:
The lacquer is a bit weak and the loosening is easy on the edges.

Summary:
my best clear skate! 5/5

Strenghts:
easy, weighs like a park ski

Weaknesses:
Bad basket

Summary:
Jp vs Julien is a cruel skiing for the backcountryn .. A ski like a few others. It's quite soft for a bc ski which makes it a bit more fun than a clean burner ski and despite its width and length it feels like a park skid when you're in the air. That the ski is so straight was a bit leaky at first, (it lives a bit of life when it gets too hard, especially in the piste, on the way to the elevator) and it may still be a little bit difficult if you want to get a bit of a basket into the bc kicker or drive a cold-lane into a straightforward entry or drop, otherwise it will be fun because it gets fairly easily loaded at higher speeds despite its length (smells a bit of a full-time school when gubb-jp got it). Awesome balance in the air and welcome you to the field after drip and hope in the pop. One tip is to rear mount a bit for the lozenge so you can stand on .. (drive yourself 4cm behind.)

Length on the ski: 188 cm
Riders weight: 75 kg

Strenghts:
really good flow in pillows but above all, incredible speed stability with its 46m radius. nice flex which makes it playful and perfect for forest and backcountry kickers. perfect switch. If you like the grand slalom swinging in the piste like me, they're perfect. they are turning when you do not want to swing all the time as a carving ski.

Weaknesses:
All I can say is that the top layer on the skid is a bit delicate and loose in pieces. can not mention the icecream. do you like this kind of skiing?

Summary:
a ski for powerful skiers who like to go on. perfect in pillows to forests. incredibly good in hopes and landings. Both switch to normal.
