Strenghts:
STRONG!

Weaknesses:
Top layer scratches very easy.

Summary:
These skis have amazing float and are extremely responsive in all conditions. I've skied them in powder and on soft groomed trails. I couldn't be happier with them. I strongly suggest these skis to any powerful intermediate or expert skier.

Model year: 2008
Length on the ski: 168 cm

Strenghts:
Excellent on all mountain conditions. Excellent on powder. I have spent one whole season on them and my performance as a skiier as completely improved.

Weaknesses:
The Topsheet of one ski has completely stripped off, at the top. The right hand side middle region has fractured 5 times on one side. YET, the other ski has experienced none of these problems. I believe this is a MANUFACTURING DEFAULT.

Summary:
I have sent my ski's off. If I do not get them fixed under warranty then, i will continue to happily spread the word to everyone at my ski resort and elsewhere - dont buy ELAN, the quality of product is poor.

Strenghts:
The ski is very pretty.

Weaknesses:
I bought these skis ans ksied on them twice. One of the skis decambered. I called Elan USA out east and they told me to send them to them at my expense. They refused to warranty the ski saying that it was with tolerance, I guest 5mm is within tolerance?

Summary:
The skis are unskiable. One ski doesn't turn, one does. This cost me nearly a grand, poor quality, poor warranty, or should I say no warranty! Buy anything else buy an Elan, they do not stand behind their product.

Strenghts:
A ski that pushes well.
In uneven pistes, you can keep high speed without losing control.
(Probably broad so-called "sweetspot")
The skid is easy for its width & works well for skipping ripples in 50 gr. slant.
Gives deep snow very well as well as goodbye well in puckelpist yeaha. Try.
Good easy binding to these racks. I (Mojo 15).

Weaknesses:
Be prepared to control the speed when the skis are happy
accelerates (without flour whale) ..
May not fly so much but keep track.
Myself.

Summary:
Already going to the next season in the French Alps.
Do not think I need to get something else in a few years.
Even he with the crest seems to preach its skis.
- If you understand who I mean.
