Strenghts:
Huge fun to ride on both piste and powder

Weaknesses:
No

Summary:
The test winner performs both off-piste and on
piste. Easy and fun to ride and also hold the grip on icy surfaces.
Can be considered narrow at present with its 84cm but we who learned to go everywhere on narrow 207cm long GS skis may find different. Recommend it to anyone looking for a single ski for all surfaces.

Model year: 2008
Riding style: Piste, Pillows
Length on the ski: 184 cm
Riders weight: 80 kg
Riders length: 185 cm

Strenghts:
Good at most, but not more than that.

Weaknesses:
Too soft in piste and a bit generally boring.

Summary:
If you do not get too hard, it will take a long way, really far.
But there are better skis out there so I have a little hard to keep up with all the above about the excellence of the ski.

Riders length: 192 cm

Strenghts:
Much better speed stability in the piste compared to B2.

Also had a good grip on the few odd parties I went on. Keep in mind, however, that the reason that the B3s I tested had so much better grip than the B2orna could be due to getting worn out with bad edges of UCPA.

Weaknesses:
Unfortunately, can not judge their off-piste skills, they are too bad at the slopes. None (for me) obvious weaknesses though.

Summary:
Hired a couple of B3: or 3 days in Kittelfjäll. The comparison is against a couple of B2: or I drove a week in Argentiere a couple of weeks ago. I'm doing well in pistes but is not a star outside (but I'm working on it :-).

The comparison may be somewhat unfair because the equipment borrowed by UCPA (B2 above) is in much worse condition than the ski rented on "real" ski rentals (B3: above).

Riding style: Pist, but heading for off-piste

Strenghts:
If you do not go so much that two pairs of skis are realistic, B3'an is the best all-round ski I've driven. Had previously a pair of Völkl 7/24 and B3'an are much more fun and more allround. Works well in everything i think Have not gone so much on ice.

Weaknesses:
It's an allround ski ...

Summary:
About a couple of skis - perfect
About two pairs of skis - buy something else

Model year: 2006
Riding style: Allround

Strenghts:
Have just owned this ski for a weekend now. But still want to share with me the joy already.
Very fast-paced and surprisingly good in piste even though it's an off-piste skiing.
Can you go as fast as it feels like?
Home backs in space will be even smaller than they are in normal cases.
It fully tested Trysil yesterday. Skis that require high speed to get really fun and start swinging.
Can make short slings turn with but best in longer cutting turns with speed.
Unfortunately, the offpiste was not the best to test the ski in full. Very hard and kind.
Will be fun next to test it in pillows.

Weaknesses:
Possible to turn back a bit if there are hard bumps or landing hard.
However, it may be because it was old frozen flax.

Summary:
Very speed-resistant ski that goes everywhere. Quieter than the B2 and can go a lot faster. Red slopes are blue and black as red. Feels like standing still, even if you do not. Good ice grip. Going well in piste if they are wide and slightly steeper.
The bonus is that it is very nice and shines well against the snow.

Model year: 2006
Riding style: Pist and some offpist scratch in Trysil

Strenghts:
After wearing my favorite G4's wristwatch, I had to try a few B3 (176cm) some sunny days in cham. Ridden them for two days in everything from hard steep slopes to soft our offpiste.

- Floats well in the off-piste both in harvested and untouched snow only one is standing properly and doing good speed.
- In ice-skating slopes, the skid works well and you can lay on long, beautiful cutters.

Weaknesses:
Basically everything not included in the above ..
In steep to hard pistes, the skis feel flattery and worried to give up as they start pushing them at high speed. The cut seems to be made inward to work fast, but works well, but it is hard to keep the cut and you start to kiss around in the swing.

Summary:
Without exaggeration, one could say that B3'an's initial condition was the right cash on the first day of the hard-hitting slopes in La Flégèr, and with my dead G4'a in fresh memory, the fool was a fact.
When I had to try the skies in soft spring snow in a relatively flat offpist scratch in La Thulie, they got some restoration but on the whole, I think it's a skid that works in the offpiste but does not go home in a hard and steep piste.
The skis were probably the shortest for me and it's possible they would work better if they were longer.

Model year: 2006
Riding style: Piste and pillows like to drive hard and fast

Strenghts:
Works on the whole mountain, a big plus + that they are stable at higher hardships.

Weaknesses:
No direct as I have found

Summary:
A cruel skiing for the whole mountain. Really a ski I recommend if you only want a ski for different types of surfaces and places on the mountain. Have just bought a pair of 184's and they will be hardcore in Engelberg and Cortina this winter.

Model year: 2006
Riding style: Pillows when there is (of course) otherwise it will be boring.

Strenghts:
Very trustworthy skid, lightweight and smooth yet tolerable while driving quickly on hard-tough surfaces. The backs really shrink with these skis on the feet.
Is incredibly allround, works on a cord, and is also very nice in clean cut. Answers well if you press properly.
As long as the edges are sharp, they are very fine on hard surfaces / ice.
Hard puckelpist is not the paradigm (if anyone expects it).
Have not run them in pillows yet.

Weaknesses:
Often sold in packs of Rossignol Axium 300, I'm not happy with that. Unloads for easy stroke. Must be screwed up really to stay on tougher rides. Negotiate a better bond with you. buy.

Summary:
To me, this is a very great skiing, probably the best I've been to (and I've had the privilege to go on quite a few different skis in my days).
The taste is like the baking, test yourself.

Model year: 2006
Riding style: Crossing the "entire mountain", prefering off-piste, but high-speed swing in a perfect piste is great!

Strenghts:
Incredibly good .. at all.
Awesome edge grip in the piste, feels like a real pistilion.
I do not feel pimples and raised lice are no problems at all.
Works great in both short and long turns, but I still prefer high speed and long turns to make the most of the ski.
Can be used everywhere, do not feel limited by the ski when I go.

Weaknesses:
None, not my way and go in any case.

Summary:
Awesome. Clearly the best ski I've traveled. With this no more than one ski is needed.
A long-awaited model.
Just have the measures needed to be able to go everywhere, unless you are an extreme off-piste who just goes without care, but how often does it happen in Sweden.
Can not decide on the graphics, but who cares on the other side.

Model year: 2006
Riding style: Everywhere except for the most dedicated parkers.
