Strenghts:
Low weight = fast under foot, lightweight, compliant, works well in the piste, even if I prefer to stick to deep bumps and more varied terrain. The B78: the orn is much softer than my XRC1100 and therefore also more forgiving and prettier in difficult terrain. The 78mm waist gives a bit more flexibility in the fluff and it's heaven nice.

Weaknesses:
As an old skater, I strive to go too narrow between my feet, which means that I often let the skis cut together on the tips of uneven terrain. B78: The ears have no plastic cap to protect the tips, which at least made me feel good ;-) The grip is not in class with my XRC: or, I think, to be such a soft skirt.

Summary:
Tested the skis 3.5 days most pistachios and ice-free in Italy and 3 days most off-piste in Sweden in 2-4 decimeters loose snow / deep snow.

Has been doing since the 70's with a longer stay. 6-10 days a year nowadays.

Riding style: Pist, puckel, deep snow and pillows if given ;-)

Strenghts:
Easy Skiing
Good ice grip
Flexible and fits all piste and terrain
The core of the ski with its "shark fin" makes you cruel control

Weaknesses:
Slightly slippery at speeds above 50 km / h
Replace easily
No weakness. but the B78 requires an advanced rider

Summary:
The best ski (for my driving style) I've ever tried. Bought it at a cannon prize in addition.
B 78 is very easy-to-handle and good to jump with. In the offpiste, it finds its correct element, even if it goes like a dream in the piste.

Highly recommended for advanced on / offpist riders who like to go a little more extremely ...

Strenghts:
Easy
Good allround skiing
Fun to jump with

Weaknesses:
A bit fluttery
Uncertain about the icecream
Slightly narrow

Summary:
A really fun ski if you mix a little pillows with puddles and pistons. It weighs a little so you can bounce around pretty well with it. It is easy-to-use and fun to jump with even if you may not be king. I tested the ski for 2 days in Bad Gastein, it snowed both days so it became quite a lot of cushions, but also a little blend of upholstered cushions and puckelpist. The ski I tested was a little too short, so it felt a bit fluttery when it was a bit of a bit.
Experienced skiers with about 30 ski days a year 50% pist 50% offpiste

Riding style: Piste-powder
