Strenghts:
The skid feels cool, compassionate and reliable in all bowels, the edge grip was good on ice, while it floated well in pillows after the welcome dumped in Åre. They are easy to handle despite the length and width and worked very well in woods and gutters. Good speed stability on open surfaces and they allow higher speed without disappointing in any way. I did not feel that the ski restricted me in the ride during the days I have driven the skis so far.

Weaknesses:
I experienced it as boring to drive on a clean cut (ie no cord) in the piste. Feel that I would need very much speed and very little people on the hill to get something out of it with these skis. Therefore, it was a good fortune that Åre offered a decade of new snow during the week, so that the ski could be tested in its correct element

Summary:
When I first got home these skis and felt at home in the living room, I was a little worried that they would be hard and uncomfortable to go on. After spending a few days in varying before, but especially in pillows, these doubts are completely blown away. This is a versatile ski, without being known as a compromise. I'll come back later on how quality and durability are, and how they work to jump or drop.

A ski with long turning radius for large surfaces and a lot of snow.
However, it works surprisingly well in the piste and the forest if you are only willing to put down the slope in the turns.
Breeda. Speed ​​Stable. Lovely powder spray in the back. Clean the dream in deep snow.

Strenghts:
really like this year's gotama! they have gotten to the lines really well! this year it turns lighter and smoother than before! stiffness suited me perfectly! they have lost the feeling of two big planks underneath the feet!
wider front and back giving more fluidity! and floats do them!
Of course, it works well in the piste as long as you get up!

Weaknesses:
Even though the plank has disappeared, Gotaman feels a bit more plastic than before! and a little pity is that the "square" tail is removed! The ski gets an impression of working built to go to the park! and that's not the right purpose for this big moutain ski.

Summary:
I go about 4-6 weeks a year! and keep me mostly out of the piste. I have previously been to Gotama 04 and 06. and I definitely think they made progress with the development!
it is a ski slope built for large mountains of beautiful forest skiing and even backcountry jumps. a really good mix of what you need outside the piste!

Strenghts:
floats on well! Sitting a couple of rottefella cobra bins and a pair of super carve plates! think it works clockwise like telisskida! However, it has not been possible to test it in the sneeze but it will come! However, it works very well to drive a piste! was a little skeptical about a start but got reverse at that point!

Weaknesses:
that it was allowed to drill the holes to the bindings on free hand as there were no templates from rattefella who made the measurements!
did not find any big errors yet! but have not taken it to its real element yet!

Summary:
exceeds my expectations as Telissky!

Strenghts:
Very speed-stable! The ski is missing everything in its path.
To be 105 at the waist, it is very good to drive in the piste.

Weaknesses:
Well, real weaknesses have not been discovered yet.
The only thing is that the ones behind are getting a nice spray of the heavily upwardly bent
tailsen ;-) But with the speed potential that the ski brings along, that's the tail, the only other rider will see you.

Summary:
A ski that astonishes and surprises!
Here it is not to be safe to go.
Should it be, it's no problem to drive cord wings.
Works fine in all types of terrain.
I'm excited about mys. (ordered on sports conrad, arrived within a week mounted o ready)

Awesome stable and fun skiing. Lightweight despite its width. Also works in the slope but best in the off piste.

Strenghts:
Great witty despite its width and length. Gasa on and feel how the ski wants to give more, great nice turns in
Maximum speed is the sign for this ski. Laminated sides instead of exposed wood core as before
models.

Weaknesses:
Have a rear mounted tie, drive big mountains ... it will get a little knivy in the park then!

Summary:
Toknice skiing as in some modes turns around and drives with you when you are going to drive
judgment! If you like big turns on big mountains, this ski is for you, as mentioned above, even cruel when it gets
tight!

I've been driving on my Völkl Gotama for 2 months now .. I've been on all three years of Gotama I'm very pleased with the skis in the offpiste .. Going badly in untouched pads to cushions and you can stay at high speeds. . In the woods, they are angry in spite of their wide. It was in the woods. I had the most fun with my skis .. Gotamas works really well in our skate, you can do well with the skis and still feel confident about them.
But is really windless in the piste is not that strange, the piste is only the distance of the track anyway. There is no height in the puck piste either, a bit too heavy and wide ..
But as I said there are pairs of clean-up offpiste skiing and that's where they belong in the piste, it's the downturn that applies to them. They get a 4 for offpiste properties and a 1 in piste properties
