Strenghts:
Light, stable and floaty ski which wants to charge!

Weaknesses:
Not so durable over time and not the best ski for tight corners (191 tested), also it is not cheap ;)

Summary:
Great backcountry ski which can also carve through chop and less ideal conditions, paired with a strong AT binding at can be a great but expensive charging tool both for almost any backcountry oriented ski trip. The bottom layer was a little less durable than expected but is probably due to the decreased weight.

Riding style: Backcountry (puder/topptur)

Strenghts:
super light and despite the fat waist easy to get on edge. Surprisingly good grip even if it is best in powder and slush

Weaknesses:
requires active skiing and nothing for short snob turns under the lift

Summary:
The best fat skis I went on and also good looking!
The only downside would be the price ...

Strenghts:
Easy genuine. Gets a fan everywhere. Good flow and for me pretty soft

Weaknesses:
Very sensitive to side strokes as they are very thin there.

The fastest way down the mountain I walked on, through ramparts, winds, blue and powder. They eat everything and sound a little different

Strenghts:
Reliable in all types of substrates, lightweight stable and smooth despite its size

Weaknesses:
That I did not buy them earlier. (if you want to go to the Gondola in Kläppen, you have to take Katanorna into the cabin, as they are too wide for skiing)

Summary:
A ski that takes you wherever you want and how much you dare, the ski is more like.

Length on the ski: 184 cm

Strenghts:
Easy, speed-stable, good flow in crushed pads. Despite its radius, it is easy to make a short run in the piste. Great edge grip on hard surface.
Have driven three days in Engelber in both hard ground and dump. Clearly the best ski I drove

Weaknesses:
In the event of a storm run, they may become a bit sluggish / planky.

Summary:
A ski that really works everywhere and who likes to drive fast! A real charger!

Strenghts:
Funny skis I had. Wide range of offpiste in Japan / Hokkaido (fluff) and in the Dolmites (heavy deep snow) and on the piste in Åre, Ramundberget, Vemdalen

Weaknesses:
gets fast laterally if you are burdened in deep snow and hit hard underneath

Really hard and icy just turn in type 23 m radius ski shape works. Because of the width I can not stand in a sharp turn when it's 25-30 degrees hard ground to speed I'm too weak simply.

Summary:
Very good offpiste. Most good off-piste skiing is bad in piste: these are almost like my W-work RTM 84. can go fast in the piste,


I used to go 80 years a year and lived in Chamonix and Lyngen in the ancient times. now down to 21

Strenghts:
Lightweight, amazing in pillows / lice. Cruel even in hard / icy pistons. Best crossover ski I own / tested in the crossover segment.

Weaknesses:
Sluggish / worried hard before when they lie on the slab, but will be completely calm when tackling them.

Summary:
Jump to buy.
Works everywhere, the downside to my ride style is that they build a lot of speed in pist.</s>

Strenghts:
Good grip, stable and feel safe in all situations. Predictable in the offpiste, fun to lay on long runs in the piste. No instability in high traffic. Slightly Curved

Weaknesses:
Well, have not experienced any. Yes to lift one hand because of the narrow edge that others pointed out, but it's up to the feet to judge them

Summary:
Awesome skis, not beating them yet. For me they were maybe a little tall (191 cm) but more of a mental thing. However, I moved the tie 2 cm in front of the rack. Before that I thought it was far too much forward, with a new position they were balanced, like another ski run. Have not tried all the skis that exist so leave space in the grade for something better, but definitely one of the best skiing I own.
