Strenghts:
I liked these skis. Demo'ed them for 7 days in New Zealand Blue ice in the mornings, soft packed middle of the day & crud in the afternoon. Nimble for toddling around , but got quieter as they went faster. OK for little chutes and drop offs too.

Weaknesses:
None really , heavy for walking up hills off piste

Summary:
stable stable stable

Strenghts:
- Works in short and long turns
- Stable at high speed
- Safe on all surfaces
- Funny if you press and lie on a cutting edge
- One of the best pistils I drove

Weaknesses:
- The color is not so cool (goldish)
- The price (8000 new with binding was the right amount of money I think)
- No skiing to drift on = requires power and active rides on cutting to get it right.

Summary:
A superb piste skiing that works well on all surfaces of the piste. No beginners skiing. If you are good skiers who like speed, you will not be dissatisfied. Are you middle-aged skiers, you have a ski to "grow into" and get to your carving technique.

Strenghts:
- The new cut that makes them wiser and fun to ride on
- The ice grip is better than the previous XRC1200 (or equivalent)
"I experience the skis as more stable than the predecessor.

Weaknesses:
- No direct, this is a fun ski!

Summary:
Sampled the ski during one evening in mid-April this year, the base was wet snow with elements of ice stains. I myself are guy, weight, etc., see you below. Runs about 120-150 days a year.

The XRC1200 is one of the funniest ski I have traveled. It combines "old" 1200 all the good features with the best of last year's Supershape.
It makes the ski slip in short turns, but at the same time it retains the strength and rigidity of the long turns, even though I would have liked to see that they were just a bit stiffer.

The little me he's offpist with it shows that it's not an optimal off-piste skiing but it's all right. Of course, it does not have the same bearing as wider offpiste skiing, but completely untoward but for the pistern's manchester it is not.

You should be a pretty van skier to get the maximum of this ski, it requires both technique and strength to be really fun. Do you think this is this, in my opinion, one of the better "allround" skis on the market. Should you have a pair of skis, this is a great pair!

Strenghts:
Quick and witty, load it with energy and resist the short circuit and it will return without any problems.
Holds well in big turns, very twisted, initiate the swallow with a light stitching, lock the skid get out of the body, follow and work through ... have not done better whipping.

Weaknesses:
It's a pistilage, take it for what it is and do not wish for what it is

Summary:
Very good skiing. Recommended. Unfortunately, it is not sold in regular stores but must be ordered immediately.
