These skis have proven time and time again to be a versatile and yet forgiving ski in all terrains. Be it woodland, upland or the occasional jaw dropping telemarking ride downhill. They're a well made pair of skis and the metal edges really make all the difference. Couple this with some Rottefella BC bindings and Alpina BC 1550 and the marriage is pure harmony.
The grip is very true while the width gives great stability. All of this comes with trade offs; if you are used to classic skis then these will come as a surprise in the weight category but this minor difference is clearly offset with the sheer delight of the ability to step off onto the beaten trail and get out into new territory. All in all; a great ski.
