Strenghts:
great floating in deep snow, very fleksible and yet relatively stable on piste even at high speeds.

Weaknesses:
not too well suited for freshly prepared pistes, since its waist is so wide it is a little tough to get on the edge on very flat surfaces. With just a bit of loose snow on top of the piste, this ski is much more easily turned.

Summary:
Nice off piste ski. Not designed for pure high speed piste skiing on freshly groomed surfaces.

Model year: 2002

Strenghts:
A true landmark ski. Pretty much the blueprint of the modern twin tip

light, fun, very easy ski. just stand centered and slide down.. having skied stiff race type skies a lot i was blow away with the ease you could dodge trees without having to work hard at it. felt like cheating.
suprisingly enough hold an edge very well even on ice.

Weaknesses:
Made from some weird cardboard resin spaceframe they will not last forever. when really pushed far beyond their intended design envelope they can crack and break. after a season they are dead.

Summary:
a ski that could be relaunched without alterations no problems 4 years on.
So if you bump into a pair in foil i'd offer a sixpack and run like forest before they changed their mind.

Strenghts:
This is a truly amazing ski that hits most of the time. Pull some quick curves into the steep slopes of the piste or lay on the fast-paced cuts, it's both alright and gallant. Only one is a good skier who knows how to handle a pair of skis, they are absolutely nothing for beginners. Then in the off-piste they are absolutely crazy, I drive in the middle of the middle. O Man turns pretty well as hell in the deep. Also works well that jibba with o drive some rails.

Weaknesses:
A little soft at the front can tend to float in unbelievably high levels, but if they had been harder they would not have the same good qualities on the rest of the mountain. So they still compensated it incredibly well.

Summary:
Incredibly good skiing that is roughly cruel on the whole mountain.

Strenghts:
Have run PR in Zillertal from Jan -06 to early March -06 + 5 days in H-valley. (about 60 days)
Very lightweight in cushions & works great in piste if you put the skis correctly.
The skis float on well for their width without sinking too much.
Did not think the skis have "flattred", lying like iron in high lanes.
Works the cannons in spring snow / slash, where skiers with narrower skis have problems.
The skis are durable, the whole construction feels solid.
Easy to find in deep snow because of its sharp color.

Weaknesses:
Is a bit too soft in a hard icy pist, but it works OK.

Summary:
Excellent "first" ski to learn to go seriously offpist with. (185cm)

Model year: 2004
Riding style: Pillows & a little piste

Strenghts:
Good for hope and play. Is it easy this is a gold ski both in the park, piste and offpiste !!

Weaknesses:
In high speed and big turns, the backdrop tends to drop a little too easily !!! And it's not that hard to break ...

Summary:
A good ski for easy riders it eats everything for lunch. But if you are heavier driving it will seem relaxed and windy ...

Strenghts:
Never tried to go on a wide or longer skis in deep snow. Okay they are not Alpine cushions but definitely a lot of snow to go on. The ski itself had a couple of years on its neck but it was obviously lovely to go on. I myself am a real fan of Salomon's skis. Gliding yourself on a couple of teneighty that I really appreciate but now I love this skiing more in deep snow! Did not have any problems with instability themselves, and they floated really well in the snow for me. The tends to make them dive and did not have to make an effort to keep them up. Really appreciated the skid that felt extremely easy to use and was not very heavy at all (compared to my 170cm teneighty) that I thought from the beginning. Sure the first turns in the piste felt a bit scary but they were just a vanessa bag. the piste was soft and lovely so they were no problem. unfortunately, I never tested them properly in pistol when the offpiste was what attracted a lot of people.

Weaknesses:
The only weakness I noticed of the skis was when I ended up on a hill where the snow had drifted away and the ice was left. As said, the ski had a couple of years on the neck and some edge grinding they have probably never been talking about. The ski had absolutely no ice grip! just slipped could not stop before the snowmobile came that they almost stopped in a crash down a hurry!

Summary:
I can only just say benefits about the ski. besides the ice grip then but they're just an old ski without any edge sharpening that's the fault! Can I say that I tested the ski in the border 3 days under the sports license when there was just a lot of snow. pulling a point just because of the ice grip and I did not test them completely in the piste!

I drove the skis a hot week in the kittelfjÀll. The surface was varied with both ice-skis and a few decimeters of snow. I only weigh 65 kilos, and I think the ski is not suitable for people who weigh heavier.
It became very fast-moving as soon as the speed increased slightly and it is probably even more clear if we weigh more. In a hurry on the lonely snow, they were a nice experience, while they basically gave me nothing in the odd slopes. It may be because the edges were not peeled, but I do not know. It's easy and driving almost exclusively outside in good snow, so there are a couple of good skis.
