Strenghts:
Carving on piste, and high speed stability.

Weaknesses:
nada

Summary:
This ski demands steep terrain. I beat these up quite a bit this year.. They can take anything I throw at them on piste. Haven't had the opportunity to take them off piste at all because of availability of terrain where I live. As long as you're moving fast, they are very easy to get up on edge! Inspires confidence all the way down.. These skis make me look better than I am. Especially good on hard conditions they cut into ice and are super stable. To be fair, the last set I owned were 1996 Rossi Viper GS skis. Had kids and stopped skiing for a number of years.. Got back into skiing and bought these. Tech has come a LONG way since I began skiing 35 years ago. Did a lot of research and decided on these..... No regrets!

Strenghts:
Amazing in uphill piste and slush.

Weaknesses:
Don't reach right in really hard before.

Summary:
Bought these in hopes of getting a pair of really hard pistols, which would not do away entirely with small excursions off the piste. In piste they work cannon in most of the bow. Awesome high-speed stable, easy to vary radius on, and easy to push into cord if needed.
In really hard piste, however, I am disappointed. Mileside difference to Stöckli Laser SX and Völkl Code which I also rode a lot, which may not be so strange iofs. However, tested my 86's head to head against Extrem Frontier 85 in resistance to icy piste, and unfortunately I have to say that Extreme skis had a completely different bite, although I perceive them as the same type of ski
Also note that they are a pair of clean ski runs, to call them front side is a bit misleading. They obviously work for a bit of forest skiing in any dm of fresh snow next to the piste, but are just too hard to be enjoyable for more than that.

Model year: 2018
Riding style: Powder if I can choose, otherwise piste.

Strenghts:
The wonderful stability of the skis in high speed, smooth or loose ground is fantastic.

Strenghts:
Lovely grip even in hard pistes. Trust them fully, only myself who is the limitation. Smart binding assembly.

Weaknesses:
Not optimal in powder, may struggle a little more than normal. But it is a ski slope I think

Summary:
For me a perfect ski in the piste, my riding style fits with large sweeping turns at high speed. Prefer something wider and longer outside. Grip walk-compatible
