Strenghts:
Very easy skiing that is cruel for turn, top attacks and dodging. I drive with a pair of Naxo binders and Lowa Struktura Light pants and it works very well. The scissors (accessories) are among the most effective I tested.

Weaknesses:
In a hard pist or oily offpiste the skid is too soft and vibrates so much that it is almost impossible to go properly. My bindings and pants are quite soft and certainly affect a little, but most of the skis are. That's the price you have to pay because they are very easy. The swing radius is also no further because they are so fat, but as long as you stay outside the snow forest, they work well.

Summary:
Very good and lightweight off-piste skiing for snowmobile and also on the hike and in the tops. Works worse in a hard pist and in a slippery offpiste as the skis begin to flow smoothly. Poor turning radius means that you should stay outside the snow forest, but due to the fact that the skis are as fat as they are. You should probably have done a lot to like them, but I think it's among the better offpiste skiing in the price range!
