Strenghts:
Swings through everything, flows well in deep snow but still grabs in a hard piste. Tried these for one day in Åre and turned on immediately. The coolest ride in a long time. Long after the next ski trip. Have tested many wide skis before, but these are both light-weighted and have a bearing outside the piste. Do not only cushions but also tough and tough windy terrain.

Weaknesses:
Instable at very high speed. We have requests from other riders, but of course it is also fun.

Summary:
Like! Surprisingly wide register on these bold and beautiful skis.

Model year: 2012

Strenghts:
The skis are witty and followable, perfect for dragging a scrub in the woods, where you need to keep the sinks on tap and to be able to shop fast.

They carry really well in pillows, nice flow without wanting to "dive". Slow even if you take really big turns. They also work well in wind-packed snow and actually grips exceptionally well in hard pistons.

The top of the skid seems to have gotten a lift from previous models, it looks fresh even though it has gotten out a lot during the month gone by. My previous kikus was extremely sensitive on the top side, after just a week they looked like rubbish!

Weaknesses:
They do not tolerate higher speeds in piste or on harder surfaces. Around 85-90 km / h they become fluttery and feel unreliable. But but! It's not in a hurry they're going to work anyway. :)

I also feel that the coat is unusually sensitive to damage. I only weigh about 55 kg, but if I go on a rock, sometimes the rope can go all the way to the core (this did not happen in Japan ...). The wood core, however, seems to be stool for most of the time. :)

Summary:
I have been skiing for 28 years. Started when I was two (you can calculate my age myself).

I went on the skis in principle every day in February at different places in Hokkaido, mainly cushions of course but all days were not nice so I have also tested them in piste, windpack, spring box etc ... Will at the end of this season have just over 60 days on skis. In previous seasons I have been around 35-40, apart from the two seasons when I worked as a ski instructor.

Have gone 3 of 4 steps in SLAO's ski instructor programs. Rather take off all the nice lines in the offpiste, but it may also be fun to have technology in the piste or just burn away some really big turns on hard surfaces. Box on doors, box on trix.
