Big with loads of sidecut. This ski carves up any snow condition : hardpack, crud, trees, powder. So much performance in one easy to ski package !
Big 84 is the perfect ski for tearing up the backcountry. The big brother of Freeride 75 model, Big 84 has longer (240-270mm) and wider (134 mm) tips, offering more flotation than most “fat” skis on the market, and being so perfectly balanced, the “Big Zags” are simply outstanding off-piste. However, they are also superb on-piste

Strenghts:
fun skiing, real surf feeling in the powder, very light and good flex, the pale weight makes it easier to swing in a more difficult environment;).
handsome, stays up from the batter at low speed in the powder, (other skis I tested easily undergo)

Weaknesses:
gently scratches on the top side, cracking in the sandwich :(.

Summary:
a fun and relatively good ski, but if you buy a new 8000 skid (I bought my order) they are not worth the money at all. A ski for over 10 salmon should be durable and not crack.

Riding style: dusts, therapist

Strenghts:
Good quality. Like most serious French brands that are not crazy mass produced.
The ski is designed in the Chamonix valley, it is felt and feels that it is made by skiers for skiers.
Also, in my opinion, it is very clean and so good does not make things worse.

Weaknesses:
I have not discovered any noteworthy weaknesses. There are very few skis that are really good at all. Seeing is no exception. It's NOT great at all, even if it turns up well if you push them a bit.
Seen is definitely one of the candidates for the title "If you only have a ski season".

Summary:
A little odd bird that is well built and extremely affordable, especially with a look bond in France.
It is a tribute to the valley and gives respect to the locality if you can go on them.
It is worth 4.5 in grades. But it may be a fifth as it draws more than four.

Strenghts:
Lovely flow, easy-wielded. If you relax and have a good balance, they do much of the job yourself; just to go and enjoy (almost). Lightweight, making it easy to handle even when it's crowded in a pregnant ravine.

Weaknesses:
Does not work well in hard pistons.

Summary:
Wonderful skiing! I got a test drive many times in connection with Heliski in the Riksgränsen. Now I have a pair of own with randonné binding for lovely top trips. Should be supplemented with another pair of skis if you have to spend long days in hard piste.

The long, fat bump both feels and looks annoying, but it works well after you get in.

Riding style: preferably pillows

Strenghts:
A super naughty fat skid that goes like two float boats in pillows. Works top for alpine o for telis skiers! Good turn in the ski that does not get too heavy in the ride. Quiet driving is offered and you can easily stand on the pow pow without worrying about submarines !!

Weaknesses:
Can get a bit fluttery at high speed on icey ground ...

Summary:
A good and fun skiing that you will have to big mountains and a lot of snow !! Did it drive for a week in Russia where only off pist was to offer - the ski did not disappoint me !! It floats in the snow and the manufacturers have different and right "think" in the production - they are considerably wider in the nose than in the tail and have a relatively narrow waist compared to other fetches. The narrow waist makes the skirt more lightweight and the waist is woven up by the difference between just the nose and tail. Absolutely one of the most interesting fetting models on the market. A must to test - at least !!

Strenghts:
This is a super exciting fun ski, which takes you to new skiing experiences.
It's super easy and swinging, as well as flowing very well off the track

Weaknesses:
First on the telemark link, then it fluttered at a slightly higher speed, put on slalom binding and after that I have not had any blafring.

Summary:
A very fun ski that suits everything without hard ice.

Strenghts:
Cruel skiing in pillows as well as in a soft piste. Have been skiing for 3 winters (like telemark skiing) and is so happy. Runs about 20-30 days a winter.

Weaknesses:
As mentioned earlier, not very well on slippery surfaces

Summary:
Funny skiing that I recommend you buy. Swings incredibly easily and hard if you want.

Strenghts:
The incredible flow of sneeze and offpiste properties in general. At the same time they work incredibly well in the piste. Take a few days to get used to going on but after that you can not imagine any other skiing.

Weaknesses:
The grip on really hard surfaces, such as the seal in December, is no further fun.
The overview is extremely reprehensible, which makes the skis quickly look scary, it does not affect the ride. But it's not fun anymore

Summary:
The best all-round ski can be found for big mountains. Perhaps nothing for Swedish conditions, but for 2 months in the Alps, I only went on these skis

Strenghts:
Very lightweight and light skis that are not so soft that they flare too much if you burn a little. Awesome bearing in loosnut and edges, and also easily pivots due to the big cut.

Weaknesses:
Not just amazing ice grip - but on the other hand it's not the purpose of them either.

Summary:
Facts about the rider: Telemark goes late -96, travels 15-20 days a season.
Bought the skis in front of a Canadian Sea when fat skis were to recommend if the mentioned 'champagne powder' would appear. Now it was not so but one day in the half-meter loosnö and the rest in a pist of cold snow, mostly a soft surface layer on a hard base but not extremely oily.

In summary, a very good freerideskida that also works well in piste provided it is not too hard and icy.
