Strenghts:
Speed stable
Easy ride, for a shop racer
Works well even in bumps, sludge, etc.
Agrees to skid when the legs / terrain requires it

Weaknesses:
No unexpected. A curly ski with a turning radius of 17 is naturally not the easiest to drive cutting short turns with, and in the same way it is not the right choice for a powder day. It is good at what it should be good at.

Summary:
Yes, they are shop racers, so they unsurprisingly require a certain level of technique and leg strength for the skier to decide on the skis and not the other way around. But they are not obsessive, there is the same easy driving and "yay-feeling" as in the Experience series, for example, only adapted to higher speeds and more competent riders. Of course, it's incredibly fun to have underfoot in, for example, a giant slalom course, but to be something as narrow as a couple of pistracers, I think they do very well in many bowls and speeds. The little tip rocker does his thing when it gets sloppy or bumpy.
The biggest difference between these and piste flags slightly down the scale then? The speed stability, and that they are on inserts when you put them on inserts. No damn wobble here no. Have somewhere around 130 ride days on my Hero so far, and in the environment they are made for, I do not have much to complain about. Thumbs up for the binding too, the SPX12 is well much better than all the NX variants.

Model year: 2019
Riding style: With these? Piste, but have run them in pretty much everything, even mid-depth powder (it was hard).

Strenghts:
Lightweight both in long cutting turns and small cards! Good ice grip and perfectly perfect in a little thicker slasksnö. Match in principle to all pisted slopes. Hard in the morning with ice spots and soak in the afternoon - no problem. First tested ST (Short Turn)
but with the right technique, you swing equally easily with LT, which is considerably warmer in long turns at high speed.

Weaknesses:
No direct that I could find but do not go off the piste.

Summary:
A superb all-round ski slope with high security.

Strenghts:
Good stability and stiffness
Reliable skis that are in higher speeds
Good edge grip
responsive
Good with rocker
Nice as attance!

Weaknesses:
Works a bit worse when they start to get upset.

Summary:
An incredibly beautiful ski that I really felt I could count on from the first ride. Just drive on and get into the turn at higher speeds, so you know that the edge grip is like a smack. Rugged in new conditions / tougher surfaces, and is fun at higher speeds. It will be a bit harder to go with when they begin to get lost in the piste.
I tried a fairly short run, but despite it it kept good stability, got the feeling that you can choose the length based on the radius you want to access because the core is carbon-reinforced, so the shorter the skis are still stable. But I would suggest buying one that comes up against his own body length.

Strenghts:
Stable in speed
Predictable
Growing with the rider
Good edge grip

Weaknesses:
A bit heavy for an inexperienced rider
You have to create "life " in the ski, it is not very playful

Summary:
A steady pistilist who puts it on what you expose it to, without whining but also without the greatest enthusiasm. Easy to drive for an experienced rider, but if you absolutely love high speed in black terrain, you should choose a stiffer skid. To 90% of all skiers in 90% of all cases it's a bell pistil!
