Strenghts:
stable
Holds edge
Fun in alppist

Weaknesses:
In heavier snow difficult to get rid of.

Summary:
Fun stable ski that goes like the train while they are relatively easy going.
Carvar good if you have enough room.
Moves ok for its width in powder but in windpack and other heavier snow they are sometimes difficult to get rid of in speed.
Later models without full rakes are probably better on hard snow.

Model year: 2013

Strenghts:
Stable and still skiing. Really good where it's steep. Drive all obstacles safe as a lock when it goes fast.

Weaknesses:
A bit heavy and clumsy. 28 in radius makes it a clean off piste ski. Works in a piste, but is better outside.

Summary:
Nice and safe.
Heavy and stable skid that is good in steep slopes.

Strenghts:
Versatility. And a crazy good grip on hard surfaces. It is also fast-paced, you can load full without it folding down, no flutter, no tendencies to nervousness, you only feel 100% confidence in the edge grip and can enjoy the g-forces and speed. The same applies if you get into a really steep and hard offpiste, smooth, reliable and calm. In pillows it flows well, I felt better if you drive with a little more speed and power, which you dare quickly. Surprisingly, playful and playful even where short turns are required.
I have been skiing for a very long time, since being a gourmand before, it's a little more gourmet over skiing, fewer days but better places.

Weaknesses:
It requires its skier, not so much weight (I weigh modestest 77kg) as having the technology. In the first few days, I thought it tended to go straight, have a slight suspicion that the binding was slightly back-mounted, 1-2 cm, and that contributed. Anyway, the smallest backweight, the skid took command, but when you realized it and compensated by thinking a little "forward", it went quite amazingly. Humps? Well, there are skis that are more fun, it quickly empties the legs of power. It is very consistent, good and bad. The message is "If you do right, we'll have fun together, but you're wrong. Do not expect any help from me," in other words, it's not forgiving. But again, it never comes as a surprise, it claims to you, but it is clear and will not bump you into any false security.

Summary:
An incredibly versatile and good ski that does not get lost somewhere. Tested it for 10 days on a Canada trip, traveled most of the ground, great perfect manchester flak, harvested piste, pads even in woods, hard pistons, rock hard and distant offpiste. It will be a great friend to camper together for many years: take it to Chamonix on your offpiste week, it can withstand everything you can find there: it's you who set the limit, not the ski. And at the same time it will be fast and safe through the snow roots in Lindvallen on the thirteenth weekend. Do not hope I've discouraged anyone from buying it. I think it might be good even for a skipper who has a little left on the technical side, just because it's so clear, it's only necessary to be a bit humble so it will quickly show what's right and wrong. It's just working a bit on it.
A cruel skiing. Nuff said.

Model year: 2014
Riding style: The whole mountain, piste, cushions, steep and hard.

Strenghts:
A sore edge grip that does not let go as bad as it gets. Sits like on rails in piste and has a good deal more grip than my Völkl Kendo. Smooth and lightweight in pillows. It also seemed to make small short-circles as it suddenly felt very lively and easy.

Weaknesses:
It would be that they feel a bit unreliable for me. Sometimes they just hit and I stood on my ear ... Could be a lack of technique from my side but there's something with the rocker who hunted for me anyway. Sometimes sunny GS songs in piste to suddenly get something else that I suspect has to do with the rocker. However, it only occurred at slightly lower speeds. When I burned in full, they felt safe (80-100km / h).

Maybe the edge grip is a little too good ...

Summary:
I mostly traveled cushions, sometimes waist high, for 4 days with these but also tried a little pist. In pads they went fine and felt comfortable and smooth. When I had a little piss at the end of the first day and got very positive, I thought I would turn it on immediately. I was almost lyrical about dangers and how allround these were.

But .... On the fourth day I went a little more pistons and realized that I will not get these in the long run. Offpiste, absolutely. But in pit they drain my legs more quickly than any other ski I went on. They sit like the mountain in the hill and in some way I was not used to even the mountain legs to receive so much in every turn. Maybe with the width to do. Imagine that if you have tight leg muscles, these layers can be a cannon but I want something more relaxed ...

However, went on 2014 but it was said that they were the same as 2013.

Did they try this during the whimsical weekend in Lindvallen, were absolutely wonderful! Tested most of the competitors, but these were something completely different. Test conditions were from raised and sometimes odd backs to some softer snow aside (but nothing like pudding unfortunately). Worked well at slow speeds with a lot of cord and as I screwed up, they played down the puffy and puffy slopes. Really fun skiing indeed! Had a huge smile on my lips after every ride, it's fun!

Something that was very positive was how easily and fast it was possible to vary the swing radius, ride style and speed. A very well-balanced ski that I think fits best for those who have good technique, like high shifts and long turns across the mountain (a little cliché but that's actually). In the few years I had found no weaknesses.

They are at the top of my wish list. Just hope I'll try them in some cushions in the future!

Strenghts:
A lot of speed stability and rocker profiles make them comfortable enough to be fun even in forest and hilly terrain. Can drive very hard in harvested and hilly terrain. Flipcore is a marketing gimmick but the profile of the rocker is perfectly measured, ie not flattery, smooth flow and maneuverable. 2.5 lower titanal = subdued.

Weaknesses:
Those looking for skis to easily pull up in the wire swing on S7 etc should look further.

Summary:
A very good ski that works in all modes. It is best at high speed and big turns.

Strenghts:
Just tested here in St. Anton and it's definitely among the best I've been to.!
The stiffness was wonderful in the pucky slopes offered and the stubbornness felt perfectly correct!

Weaknesses:
For some, can be perceived as heavy and difficult maneuvered

Summary:
Certainly a really really nice skiing for all-goers who still want the width of an Offpiste skiing but can go really fast in the slopes!
