after breaking 2 pairs of atomic izor ti ato 07 with in 3 weeks i was happy that the elan speed wave 8 held up the fat front is nice in powder for a mid width shape ski and the edge is fair to great on icer areas

could use a more agressive edge and a bit tighter feel but all around i wish they were a bit lighter a tiny bit on the heavy side but that is going off of the atomic nanos witch are carbonfiber

a good all around ski ok in powder and some what agressive on groomed trails. what it comes down to is there very good but they are not k2 apachy rangers
