Strenghts:
- Parkshapead all mountain ski that you can play with everywhere
- The flex in the ski holds for both the park and drip in the back country
- Relatively light skis purely weight-wise
- With look pivot bindings, there is minimal surface between ski and ski boot, which in my case has given a sick check back and an extremely good reaction in the skis
- Good reaction between ski boot and ski
- Good pop for hope

Weaknesses:
- Becoming edge-shocked very easily and because of it, parts of the graphics / skid loosely detach from it
- More park-oriented shape than cushions and topping
- At -1 mounted bindings, the skis would still like to behave more like a park all mountain than powder
- Due to light weight, it becomes unstable at very high speed

Summary:
Bought the skis in Åre during the 17/18 season and went away from running daily and all the mountain on my Armada Al Dente 178 cm to Ct 2orna and they immediately became my "main" skis to go on without having to think about changing depending on where I want to go.

With Look Pivot 18 Bindings on it is such a sickly good reaction time between me (the ski boots) and the skis, edge to edge you get to stand on a bit deeper because of the 102 mm range at the foot but it has never been a problem to stand on in the piste as well as in the forest with judgment.

In the park it is one of the more poppy skis I have been driving, except that I do not rail so I have had a better experience at Ct 2a than Al Dente in big hopes and dropps in back country.

For me, it is one of the most clean all mountain skis you can find if you are a playful rider, they really work everywhere in any ride you want except in deep powder, if you are going to go deep powder I would go towards CT 3.0 instead or if you go to very deep places so CT 4.0, but it is a really really good Åreskida.

Strenghts:
Versatile
Good pop

Weaknesses:
A little too narrow for the really deep powder.

Summary:
A versatile ski run that has been tested in different kinds of environments and keeps the crowds up to date!



Pist: Although this ski is not made for pistachio you can have a lot of fun there.
Absolutely, should you stand down the slopes so there are more sensible ski options.
But the ride in the piste was amazing all the way from the morning manchestra to the cockpit at the end of the day.
When playing around in the piste, it felt a bit like the skid did the pivots all the way as long as you leaned in the right direction. A bit like bouncing between the inserts.


Pillows: When I bought the ski, it was thought of as a clean lifted pudding ski that was in the Swedish / Norwegian forests. In spite of a waistline of "just" 102mm, one walked between the trees in Tandådalen, Vemdalen and Trysil. What I prefer to convey is that the control of the ski is magical and thus the "reaction time" if you can say so.

Park: At the end of the season, the ski came along to the park. The playfulness of the skis showed up immediately and the ski has a certain "pop" that could be used to the maximum in the environment in which you were.

Top trip: He is doing a couple of trips to spring skiing and the ski has since gotten an x ​​number of fall height meters. The CT 2an weighs a bit more than usual top skis, but worked very well up.

Strenghts:
Light.
Slightly soft.
Playful.
Good edge to edge.

Weaknesses:
Can flatten a bit at high speeds.
Thin coat (easily slips = a lot of layers).
No super-durable steel edges.

Summary:
Good skiing to slide around on the mountain and play. Works well in the park, except that the steel edges do not fit well on the rails.
If you go outside the piste and drive over a stone or a stock, it is very easy to get a hole in the bed, which results in a lot of effort.
In addition to that, they clockwise work all over the mountain simply!

Strenghts:
Light
playful
stable
Good response

Weaknesses:
Slightly shaky at higher speeds

Summary:
Had the opportunity to go skiing on a weekend in Åre. Minus degrees in the morning and plus degrees in the afternoon gave the opportunity to test the skis on mixed surfaces.

They were definitely one of the nicest skis I went on. Easy and easy to control. Being fast and having good response, folded makes the ride playful. Stabila at the end of the day when the slopes have been lifted, but I felt the skis were a bit shaky at higher speeds. Unfortunately, they did not have the opportunity to test them properly with pillows, but they had very good stability in the woods on hard surfaces with a few centimeters of fresh snow on top.

Would recommend the skis for the rider who wants a couple of skis for the park and all the mountain.
