Strenghts:
Wide, rugged, easy ride on all surfaces. Never feel unnecessarily big.

Weaknesses:
No optimum pistol fisherman ...

Summary:
Fantastic allround despite its size. Went there one week in alternating weather in Val Thorens.
Breathtaking and fun in all weather in the offpiste, both in the hot pumps cold pads, in crowds and in melting heavy snowy snow.
Works quite ok in the piste when required, with speed and pressure it turns (but lively may not be the correct word).
Not the least difficult to get around in the hump, with full rocker it experiences it shorter than it is.
Tjoho, what a ski !!

Strenghts:
Going over everything. Huge flow in loosnö ,, almost ridiculous. Funny see when you cross the crowd ,,, and the other with a narrower waist just drops through. Stable at speed and you notice the more you go, the more fun they are. Have gone in some coloires also with them and are amazed at how easy they are to get around.

Weaknesses:
Getting a bit heavy, especially if you have duck bindings (I had snowpulse also with reinforcement garments etc etc ,,, which did not make it easier). One disadvantage I noticed as when the beginner is to go for a walk is that they have 0 span and long progressive rocker, which means that you walk on hard surfaces without scarlet and it's steep ,,, are you pretty tired , since there is not nearly any contact surface with the studs at all .... and on the other hand, this is eliminated with scarlet ,,,
Not the world's best ice grip - but you can not wait 119mm below the foot either.

Summary:
Cruel moves and goes all the way ,, and is very fast-paced. Extremely calm at medium to large turns when you can only get on and the skis do not wake for a second. At the same time they are extremely easy to swallow.
Feels like a quality building. Hope to have the pleasure to go with them in Japan next year ..

Strenghts:
Calm in high speed both inside and outside the piste. Almost ridiculous light skating in a bit deeper snow, whether it's lacking, heavy snow, light snow ... yes you understand. No offpist no problem either. Have come across myself sometime during the winter wondering what kind of snow I just went in / on. Relatively the size I think is a light and smooth skid.

Also, as Martin mentions in his review, I also a little surprised how well they actually are in the piste, even in a really hard piste. Do not know why iofs but anyway :)

Weaknesses:
Do not really know ... but they are not immediately playful if you say so. Should not say boring, sometimes a little "over-safe" in some way, perhaps, but without, for example, Katanan's tune-up appearance.

The surface layer is not tough if you say so ... surprised ... someone !?

Summary:
If you like high speed in big turns, in all terrain (except possibly blue ice), you'll feel at home here. If you want something playful and playful, there are many other good options. I've had a lot of hump and steep, narrow forests with great pleasure, but it might not be my first choice if that was what I used to do the most. Then there are some Line and Armada models I would take a long time before.

But now I like to go with big turns as quickly as possible, as often as possible, and then they fit me like the hand in the glove. Run them with Marker Tour F12 and it's okay to walk along. Even here, maybe, not my first choice if there would be longer trips over longer periods ... to kick in an open door.

Strenghts:
Flowing really well, felt almost impossible to lower the tip.
Turned okay in the piste.
Stabila through skitsnö.
Stumpy rocks worked terribly.

Weaknesses:
Not playful anywhere. Went less on them after a ride, and after a whole day I was almost angry.
A vertical spray is virtually impossible, and as soon as you do something the least jump-and-play, you are thrown into the back seat. Now it can be my ride, but in the name of honesty I do not think so.

Summary:
Tried these a whole day in the middle days in Tärnaby. Went about 17-18 years in total. It was everything from steep and icy, through perfect piste, out in the rough and sparse and then to 3 dm unspoilt pads.

I did not wise on them. They did not let me do as I wanted, while it did not really seem to be bad skiing at all, rather the opposite. What I disliked most was the inability of the ski to deliver faceshots. Even though it was 3 dm of high quality pads, only two were spent on the whole day. And even if you would "cheat" to one (beaten properly in a turn, and get snow splashed all over your body), look for the snow at a 45-degree angle backward, rather than straight up. It was as if the ski was saying "No! You're going to turn right!"

You can thus say this: It does what it's gonna do, okay. But it is far too limited. If all the skis were so limited, I would have to change every third turn, and it would be somewhat impractical.

Strenghts:
Hmm what should I write ,,, but just have to ...
tried these 1 day in the tooth decal when it was 10cm sneezing. Tried in the piste and outside. Quick to swing around, felt very short. Stabila as attance. And ridiculously simple in the snowmobile ,,,, although the ski is made deeper fluff than 10cm. Unexpectedly good grip in the piste when you're on edge ,,, but it will take up the entire back if you go out edge ,,, and you pick up a couple of Danes and children with you on the way down ...

Weaknesses:
Can be perceived a bit for male in the elevator queue - especially in the tandådalen ,,, but it is not the other side that the skid is made for either - the Swedish wings ,,

Summary:
The little I went with so far ,,, a cruel skiing that's extremely easy-going ,,, and speed-stable. The skate feels very short.
I hope to return when I spent 2 weeks in Gressoney with them ...
