Strenghts:
Made for experts, this ski gives the more you push it! Surprisingly handles bumps with ease, especially with a free ride dampener. Really finds its rhythm on the piste at pace - short sharp turns are made with ease. Powers through sloshy, cut up muck with ease as well.

Weaknesses:
Very heavy (at least with free ride dampener). Can be unforgiving on the knees. I'm not convinced Hendryx duck stance is good for knees either. My knees have been aching for months after, although that could die to a couple of falls I took in the softer stuff when I took them off piste. Don't even bother taking them into soft snow - they sink and the 'progressive rocker' means the tips catch the snow making it harder to turn.

Summary:
A great ski for strong skiers who want to get maximum piste performance and some play off the sides. Not an all mountain ski though and very heavy too.

Riding style: Piste

Strenghts:
Stable & even more stable the harder you drive !!
Drive away from anyone trying to hang on!
Giving me a brutal thigh training.

Weaknesses:
My own leg strength

Summary:
There is the opportunity to get these and you will be wonderfully fun. I bought these 180 cm untested and came from a clean slalom ski and can only say that this is the next level of challenge.
Keep with the description that the harder you drive the more they deliver.
Go for it!

Strenghts:
Reliable!!! It does exactly as you want. This skiing is exactly what you expect. Mentally, that is the security itself.

Weaknesses:
Your own weaknesses handles more about. The question is whether you have technology or extremely good exercise with strong legs? Do you have both parts do you seriously do not try these?

Summary:
Tracks and grasps are like a blend of slalom and grand slalom. I have also driven them in an incredibly good off-piste in Kittelfjäll. It's just getting on and having fun !!! I also think that the well-calculated angle of rocking and stiffness makes them so smoothly recovered and worse conditions. Just to go on.
However, I am a technician and not directly trained. But for me it's better to get away from wonderful experiences and yokes that give good memories, and then rest a bit and enjoy than herd at half past seven. I'm a happy owner of these.

Strenghts:
-Say good
-Flows on top of harvested piste
-Reliable

Weaknesses:
- Not the easiest skis
-Träningsvärk
- Massive waiting down at the lift on the poles

Summary:
The ski really lives up to its description, it just goes out of hell and shows no signs of getting nervous when it's fast. Surprisingly lightweight and easy to get rid of, but at the same time a bit aggressive. That's probably the first time I feel so inhibited by my strength as when I'm kidding with these.

Sick satisfied with the purchase!

Strenghts:
Goes on rails if you angle them. Requires active driving, but then you get good extraction in the form of an incredible pressure from the turn. The skis do not fail without the limitation being in the ability of the rider.

Weaknesses:
None really. Walking slowly on "transport stretches" and as a previous reviewer points out no further in the fishing hopping it is in and follows no major problem.

Summary:
Perfect for Swedish conditions. Grows strong "habegär".

Strenghts:
Very easy to get in turn, angle up, keep creating angle and hold! Stability in turn feels very racingly (race stockfeeling). At the reload there are tons of power loaded in the skid, ready to throw you over to the next turn. The time to change from edge to edge is surprisingly short, despite the waist of 97 mm. What I first thought was "SL carver", with the difference that a pair of soils had unintentionally digged into the soft surface with the corresponding at the corresponding edge angle. I never stuck in the heavy snow, nor in the afternoon's snow highs. Horseback riding (God forbid!), No problem.

Weaknesses:
Did not detect any weaknesses just during this session of about 5 hours. Possibly a little bit awkward when transporting, the friends were looking forward to me despite being rolled and brushed. Depended a little on the rocker, no big thing.

Summary:
OK, the conditions were not optimal for this test. I would have liked Åre's hardest artificial snow or something similar, instead, the freshly prepared sneeze was mixed with about 10 cm of fresh solid. They immediately reminded of a pair of SL carvers, but there is much more to discover clearly. The rewriting hard flex was not marked at all (!). I surely weigh about 100 kg with everything on me.
I will come again when I drove them on dry groomed snow / ice and similar bowl.
Drops to the 5th then!
Awesome laugh!
Will return!

Strenghts:
It feels like riding the TGV in the piste. (French high-speed train). It's the toughest I ever went on. It can also be likened to the joy and sighing when skiing and roller skating. One test day then I bought the layer. Now I have driven a day on my own and they are crazy good.

Weaknesses:
If you go fishing without laying the skis on the edge, they feel quite boring and sluggish. But as soon as you squeeze the layer out of the body and cut it on, they turn into turbomatic thoroughbred racers.

Summary:
Thank you Henryx!

Strenghts:
Pistol missile with a lot of turn, up with them on the edge (the more the better) and cut ...
Moves easily into turns, on calmer yards it is easy to take tighter turns than the data sheet indicates, assume that it is the location of the binding and the Rocker that helps there. At steeper faster rides they cut larger turns.
Cut through slash and crud in a confidence-enhancing manner.
Feeling good with Rocker, the skate is ready bent when you enter the swing, just tilting and gasping.

The 917 is primarily a stable and reliable piste ski, but it also can handle some pillows despite the low width. 30-40 cm pow on a fairly firm surface is no problem, but I have tested in the bottomless of hardwoods, making the mounting of the tie and the relatively low board that they like to dive, but the ski is mainly made for piste (I had I wish I would like a higher board).

Gets stable on transport despite Rocker.

STH16 bindings, Duck mounted by ordination.

Weaknesses:
No direct, possibly the low board that fits best in the piste. But on the other hand it's a piste ski.

Summary:
• Stable and reliable piste skiing
• Also clears pads
• Slides easily
• Nice release from the turn
• Good ice grip
• Good finish and good durability on the top.
• Cheeky design

Strenghts:
A very good pistachio that works extremely well in all pit situations.
Extremely good ice grip.
Also works surprisingly good offpiste, I think the skid overlays my old 190cm Völkl Katanor in this element.
There is NO possibility of getting out of the ski, the more you hit the more you will get back ..
And hang on now, I think, to be such an extreme ski, the ski is very easy for what it's delivering back!
The quality of the ski resort is superb!

Weaknesses:
Well, no direct actually, but the extreme extreme stiffness of the skis is noticeable when it goes fast in a messy, raid offpiste. Then it should be on guard so the ski is not cut or found on any other bus that you do not long for.
Difficulty :-) (I'm doing a lot with my 4th year old daughter and for this type of skiing there are skis that are much more easily plowed :-))))

Summary:
After about 20 ski days on my 917 I can only say: Hats off for Hendryx!
The ski has been tested in both Sweden and the Alps and I can only say that this is the BEST best ski I have ever traveled. (I've owned 67 pairs before so I have some to compare with.) That it would work in the piste was quite obvious but that it delivers the way it does in the 50cm newfoot loosnut really made me shark!
However, you should be aware that the ski works best for a strong and technically driven skier. It was a long time since I went on a ski that sucks the mustache out of the way this ski makes ... And then you'll know I did quite a lot on SL racestocks that are not nearby when it comes to sucking the mustache out of the legs ... and yes, I have been doing pre-season training this year with :-)))
