Strenghts:
I usually ski volkyl ac 30 which I selected after testing several.Unfortunately they were stolen twice in Val D'Isere !
I've skied 20 years and ski hard on and off piste.

The waveflex 14 out performs the AC30 on piste and the softer flex and fatter tips also means its good in the chopped up snow and powder if skiing at speed.

Its easy to turn and doesn't loose grip when carving on ice or hard pack due to its amazing torsional stiffness. I will carve a slalom or GS turn depending how much you put it on its edge. The faster you go the more it grips-sensational

Weaknesses:
Cost in Europe 699 euros but found the sole importer for UK selling them for £399 with bindings (unbelievable value for a top end ski)

Summary:
Unbelievable all round ski. I urge you too buy a pair if carving short medium turns at high speed with occasional trips into powder is your thing
-you will not be disappointed.

Riding style: hard fast on piste love powder when its around
Riders weight: 90 kg
Riders length: 168 cm
