Strenghts:
- Lightweight, good for a top trip
- Unexpectedly performs well on all substrates I tested

Weaknesses:
- Wear quickly in the tips around the riser bracket
- So light skis don't feel quite rock solid compared to heavier layers but it is perhaps a habit

Summary:
A couple of very light skis that are a joy to knot up. Despite this, however, they perform unexpectedly well in all conditions I have been able to test in six days in Åre / Tegefjäll / Duved / Storulvån, which included hard wind packed, fresh snow, raised loose snow, and full day in piste. Maybe the perfect ski for Swedish conditions?
The tips wear very quickly with lots of small hooks (mainly in top sheet what I can see) after said six days. If there is a problem or not remains to be seen but it looks like this which pulls the grade down from a fifth to a four. I have a pair of Dynafit Radical ST mounted.
