Strenghts:
Light, peppy, great float in powder, good strength on turns on corduroy at moderate speed.

Weaknesses:
None for my type of skiing!

Summary:
I demo'd these last year in Jasper. They were fabulous! My normal skis are K2 True Luvs, which great on the groomers and pack but they sink in the soft stuff. These Auras were lighter than my K2s, performed at least as well on piste, popped nicely on moguls, and floated like magic in the powder. They were very responsive around the trees - my favourite spot - and held their edge nicely on the groomers. I'm not a terribly high-speed skier so I'm not sure how they perform when pressed at faster speed, but that's not what they're for. I'm investing in a pair of the 2011s this year - same technical specs with a different topsheet.

Highly recommended.

Strenghts:
Fanstatic on powder, easy turning. Great on and off piste.

Weaknesses:
On the flats they give alot of wobble and need alot of work, better to stay on the edges. Not so great for tree riding with lots of little turns. Maybe that is because I have the 170's and I am 170cm.

Summary:
I fitted frichtsi freeride pro bindings and have taken them touring. It makes them a little on the heavy side. On the up they were fantastic and you can fit a great crampon that can flip up when not in use, so you dont have to remove it.

Great all rounder but on and off piste but I think I will look for a different ski for touring.

Strenghts:
Really nice skiing on both ice, nypistat and more harvested piste. Being old racing driver and making high demands on how the ski behaves, and I'm really pleased with this. Stable, fast and consistent in both steep and slippery slopes.

Weaknesses:
Can sometimes cut a little in the turns of ice-typical rock skating. But this rarely happens and is much less than I expected.

Summary:
I never test the ski in the correct deep snow, but I would sum it up as rude and over my expectations. You need power to swing it, but once you get it, it's amazing. However, it should not be said that the radius is closer to 20 meters, since it is undoubtedly possible to make much smaller turns.

Strenghts:
Fantastic all mountain skiing. Works rude well in most bowls.
Stable and forgiving for both icebergs and winds on the entire mountain.

Weaknesses:
The skid requires a little pressure on it, which can be a little bit rough in the uneven bow or tired legs.
Does not float very well on the snow at very fresh snow. I'm 165 tall and go 170cm skiing, sometimes a bit hard in the bow, with a lot of obstacles like stones and trees when the swing radius is quite tall, if I had the chance I would take 163an

Summary:
Incredibly pleased with this playful yet stable skid.
Has developed my offpiste ride a lot on these while I have been completely satisfied with it in the piste.
Possibly they have 40 days in Björkliden / Riksgränsen of 30 out of 40 days.

Strenghts:
Superscore in big GS turns, flowing really well in the offpiste. Stable and swallows irregularities in a nafs. Nice design (for example, toddlers stay one in the elevator and think the skis are good!).

Weaknesses:
Slightly sluggish in short-range due to the radius, not quite optimal grip in a hard icy piste. Unfortunately, the graphics were ripped off quickly.

Summary:
Cruel allround skiing, which feels the best out of the piste, where it goes like the train. A little heavy run on the surface. Highly recommended!

Model year: 2011
Riding style: Allround (50-50 pistons / pillows)
Length on the ski: 156 cm

Strenghts:
Very aggressive skiing that requires its skier! Gets to go fast and go best at high speeds. Very stable and safe that really does not fold off for hacks. Predicting on all surfaces, good ice grip and also wearing good nose. Feels like a grand slalom that shouts "do me!"

Weaknesses:
No good skiing when you get tired of your legs, or can not put pressure on it, as it really requires riding. It is hard and quite heavy. No skid that wants to be careful when you go carefully =)

Summary:
Fun all mountain skiing for the more advanced skier

Strenghts:
lively and playful in the piste. reacts immediately when pressed! all right ok have not tested them in the off-piste but can imagine that they work well even there!

Weaknesses:
a little windy in snowy snow. could have a little more temprament and attitude!

Summary:
A good freeride ski over virtually the whole mountain (the powder remains to be seen). a ski for girls who do not back for a little challenge! fun skiing but would like to see a little more temprament and liveliness!

Strenghts:
Stable skis that can really be trusted. Works well and is really fun in the piste despite its fairly steady waist size.
Absolutely sovereign in the uphill and uneven pistol, unfortunately, have not tested so many other bowls but rumors say they like the best offpiste.

Weaknesses:
Does not fit well for those who prefer shortcuts in the piste - but then you do not choose these.

Summary:
Should you only have a pair of skis that fit most of them - buy these!

Strenghts:
Works everywhere! Great in pillows and offpiste, but also turns well in the piste. Feels incredibly stable, which allows you to focus on! They're nice too :) :)

Weaknesses:
Can not deal with anything special. Perhaps a little tricky among many trees and puckles, but it may also be due to lack of technology & # 8230 ;.

Summary:
I go telemark and have a BD 01 mid-stiff bond mounted. Feels like a good combination of binding and skiing. Have spent about 20 days so far this year with them, both in the pist and off-piste and also with some shorter peak trips. Every time I put on the skis, a smile is spreading on my lips! They are absolutely sovereign! The skis have definitely helped me improve my ride. Have been in Telemark since 2002.

Strenghts:
Good edges and cut in piste! Swing radius no problem!
Flattened well off even though a longer skid might give even more bearing. Smooth. Easy. Stylish.
Loved it dear o holy until ...

Weaknesses:
One of the skis bowed after two weeks of skiing. Well-groomed, so get it, it was not due to crashes but only on checkout quality.
Was not really surprised when the same had happened to one in the company's Mantra just before ...
Have read in the forum "Mantra - Wrong on them?" which seems to describe the problem and it's just too sad that it's so bad with the new skis of the splash.

Summary:
Helgo skiing to go on, definitely! However, lost some confidence in it when the right bent out for no reason.
Got a new Conrad after a little bit of yesterday. They claim that bending is not a case for the right of complaint even in Sweden, which I have rejected in a badly. 3 years of advertising right, no Swedish salesman can speak out as long as it concerns anything other than malpractice and wear and tear. The stores I have talked to here in Gothenburg have said the same thing. Dare to advertise more thus.

If possible, get more beautiful skis next year if possible and keep it just the shape, it will certainly be fine in the winter! One final foundation applies to 07 / 08n middle mounting points.
At the center of the ski is the boot center in red and a cross in the same color. Then there is the usual one on the page that strangely does not match the crossing. Do not they sit at the same point? My boot center is now behind the red cross but in front of I: one which may mean mounting? Jajaa, all guts.
