Those who have skied the best-selling Super Stinx will be happy to hear that the only changes to this all-arounder are inserts and new paint. The deep sidecut provides superb accuracy and carving power, while the 70 mm waist allows sufficient float and bomber hard snow performance.

Great ski for on the pist skiing. I still haven't really found the speedlimit of these skis (though once on a really steep slope noticed some small vibrations on the upper ski, but it might just be my technique).



The ski is also light enough for general ski-mountaineering and has skin-back hook holes, the ski also have holes at the front for you to make them an emergency sled.



The skis perform well on ice slopes, but even more fun on the soft stuff, as you really don't need that much speed to raise the fronts of the skis above the snow.

Great on-mountain ski if you're on the East coast or somewhere icy or like to do bumps. The revolution is here! Despite how well you think you ski on your long and skinny skis, you'll do better on fatter and slightly shorter ones. The only true advantage of these skis is for flatter traversing, long-approach (4-5 miles+) winter summits because they are lighter. Take a leap of faith and step up to the World Piste or something similar in another brand.
