Strenghts:
+ Crazy pistol grip for both short and long turns.
+ When it starts to go fast, you can easily eject the back end and still maintain good control but slow down slightly.
+ Awesome "pop".
+ You're never boring on the skis, but they require you to be active. Otherwise you get "whip" of them
+ Nice flow in just a lot of lice
+ High Speed ​​Stability

Weaknesses:
"If it gets more than a punched pillow, it may take a few inches for more bearing.

Summary:
If you relax too early, the skide speaks quickly if it is for you and you get a nice throw to pair. Has so far failed to "push through" the ski despite high speed and try to provoke this. This is positive in my world as you stay active as a skier and thus (probably) have more fun and develop as a skier
When it starts to go fast, you can easily slit the back end and still keep fine control but slow down slightly.
Awesome "pop" in the skid and fun to drive even in bullied pissed piste, stands for this without losing control.
Overall, the skiing is very good and it feels like a great ski for those who want a skiing for Swedish conditions that they often watch but still give you great opportunities to play in both jumps, pistes and offpiste.
Rid in about 20 cm pads and it floated on superfine, then we found a knot jumper and it floats well there too, but as I write above, I probably lacked a little more width.
The rocks are obviously floating in high runs and hard pistes, but the ridge remains rocky in the hill yet.
Should not call this a pair of skis for a beginner, but you should dare to go on the right track. In terms of price, I think they are in a clear sense level similar to similar skis.
Looking forward to scrambling, try them in the spring box too, but it has not been possible yet.
Testort 1 so far is a well-laid-up forest in Järvsö, where the dykes also showed a sense of playfulness and playfulness in the swings between the trees.
Testort 2 is in a snowy Åre with its best snow season for many years. Here too the forest crop was a favorite.
Next week they will join Ischgl and it will be time to see how they like it.

Shortly enough, a heightened ski lift that makes me even more fun on the slopes.

Strenghts:
Witty, playful and very allround

Weaknesses:
Feels like you have an unreasonable amount of skis behind the foot. May interfere in steep terrain. It is recommended to mount the tie slightly backwards if you do not prioritize the rear end.

Summary:
Very allround and above all very fun to ride on. Answers well when you press without being difficult for that matter when you want to kiss. Rid previously with a pair of off-road skis and a couple of pists, but have passed 95% on these.

Model year: 2015
Riding style: Round turns with early edge and speed control :)

Strenghts:
Awesome, versatile skis that handle basically everything with good margin, good flow in pillows, although they feel quite small on their feet, very good edge grip for being this kind of ski. Short well balanced swing radius that is damn fun when it burns a bit. Fun simply and good "ninjility"!

Weaknesses:
Because they are so versatile, they are not directly the best at anything. Lack of playfulness and a few percent softer had been fun for this type of ski.

Summary:
A good allround ski when I do not really know what skiing is offered. Works for everything, pillows, pistes and parks and is a good balance when you can not carry all their skis on a trip. Had probably been one of my favorites if it had full robes, weighed 300g less and had a little flatter tail on the twintip for hides, then you had a lot of fun when you were doing it too!

Model year: 2017
Riding style: Quick long pudding wings, playful ninja rides in harvested piste / offpist, little park without spinning.
Length on the ski: 190 cm
Riders weight: 80 kg
Riders length: 187 cm

Strenghts:
- Good flow in loose nose
-Who in pillows
-Lagom radius in the piste
Extremely light-carved even in short-range.
-Select pucks and wipe in a nafs
-Heat in the offpiste long beautiful turns that can be swiftly swiftly short-circuited

Weaknesses:
Something nervous when you're over 90km / h (not below)
The flattery becomes clearer the faster you go

Summary:
As previously said, very nice, nice.
Funny skis that make me 38 years old that I want to play a little.
I felt that the skid went better when I pulled the tie 1 cm from the recommended line
Have chips jester schizo mounted so will try to move forward even more to see.
Will have the ski as a complement to my Völkl RTM Vwerks, my son will use the ski in the park and offpist piste.
Never experienced the skid as long or clumsy could certainly have chosen 190cm but then worked worse in the park for the guy.
A really good all-mountain ski that works everywhere.
Going in time with these skis about 65% piste 45% offpiste.
Returns with his review.
We chose chips jester schizo to be able to reach the center and to the recomended line when we are 2 to use the skis.

Strenghts:
EXTREMELY light skating
"Whatever you throw on the skis, they'll eat it without a problem."
-Like like a thousand, hardly feel that they are sitting on
-Sleeve even for anyone who is not used to wide-sided pages

Weaknesses:
-And I noticed so far is that they can be a bit fluttery at high speeds, but that's obviously understood by the construction and can hardly be added to the negative. That's it.

Summary:
Got these badboys for the 2013/14 season and come from all mountain skis with a little narrower measurements. And as I'm glad I took it up! After all, they test in all sorts of terrain but are almost surprised at how bad they can be carved with. Maybe no real shock, but I thought I'd get bigger problems with it than I got. I'm going on 184 and 187 cm tall with 95 kg of steady boilers, but I still experience a bad float in the skis and no tendency to dive. Hanging 0 in the park so I do not know how the ski is doing.

Have spent a total of 9-10 days on them in different terrain and am delighted that I chose these skis and recommend them warmly to everyone I meet or ask about them. Unfortunately, have only tested them in Sweden so far but if you go for reviews on the interwebz they seem to be dummy wherever you go. However, if you go to Niseko, it may be worth trying out the Opus instead.

Total summaries: Underwater skis that go 5 skies of 5 possible.

Model year: 2014
Riding style: Powder / therapist

May be a bit complicated to ride in ice-caves, but it's just too hard to drive and run fast.

Both my wife and I Line Sir Francis Bacon, we often go on top trips and use them as randonee skiing, which means stigh's driving.

Strenghts:
Was a week in Val D Isere. Unfortunately, I got sick but he got 3 nice dgr with some snowy snow, sun and cold and hard morning pistol. Immediately fell in love with this playful and easy-going ski. There was no amount of sneezing but still enough to test and the skid is very easy-going in the mjuksnö. The rocker makes it easy to surf the surface. And the amazing thing was that it went well any time in a hard piste.

Weaknesses:
No weaknesses. Do not go to the park so I can not speak.

Summary:
A very good ski that I would highly recommend. I've found my skiing.

Model year: 2012
