Ski Test: Nordica Spitfire RB 72

You can love or dislike karv skiing from Nordika, but it is impossible not to recognize them in skiing as a ski tester. They have always been very characteristic: excellent rail and powerful, but in one narrow range of one turning radius. Personally, I don’t like this kind of skiing because I myself love the variability in rhythm and this is exactly what I expected from the version of skis updated this season. Well, the time has come to check whether my hopes have come true or not. Let's go check.

Ski Test: K2 iKonic 80Ti

In my opinion, K2 universals are not just a classic of the genre, but also quite standard skis and classics of this category. Until now, and since the end of production, quite a few years have passed, I remember the Speakers who were more than popular. But, nothing stands still. Neither good nor bad. Everything develops and changes. Something for the better, something in its direction. Today we are checking the development direction of the Konik series from K2 and, in particular, the 80Ti model. Go.

Ski Test: Atomic Vantage 82Ti

Although Atomic, like the entire Amer Sports group, has ceased to announce its new products at the leading ski exhibition "ISPO", they didn't stop their activity. Even if new models do not appear, the old ones are updated. In the on-piste category, they had interesting skis with an 83 waist with, carbon, and titanium. This season they were updated and became with a waist of 82 and only with a titanal. And today, on the test, we need to check how they ride and how much they differ from the old model. Let's go.

Ski Test: Salomon S/Force 11

This on-piste allround ski by Salomon has always been interesting and not standard for the industry model. They were the first to switch to soft skis in this category and definitely did not lose even once. Remember their Q-85 which was replaced by completely bombarding XDR 80. But today it’s all in the past the company doesn’t stand still and completely changes the concept for some reason returning to the classic format of universal skis and we have no choice but to try them understand how this solution works and may be interesting to us.

Ski Test: Dynastar Speed Zone 10Ti

For so long ago I have not seen good cross-country skiing from Dynastar on tests, that I don’t expect anything interesting and I understand for sure that nothing new has appeared in this category, there are no hopes for improvement. But tests are tests and, perhaps, in today's snow on a new piste for a new mood and feelings will develop in a new way. Who knows who knows. We try.

Ski Test: Elan Amphibio 18Ti2

Elan has two very good skis: GSX and 16Ti2. More precisely were. This year, as part of the update lines, another model 18Ti2 was added to them. And then the questions arose: better, worse, how are they now combined with each other and what new can the new model bring to this already-successful pair? Well, here it is the moment of truth. Here they are on the track and you can drive and find out everything personally in skiing.

Ski Test: Salomon S/Force Bold

Some time ago, at the time of global off-piste hobbies, Salomon, one of the first, made universal skis in the format of narrower freeride skis instead of extended carves. And then it was very timely, progressive and interesting. Now the fashion in the ski industry has turned back towards the station wagons in the form of wide carves, and then Salomon has turned out to be in charge. Well, let's check out their carving with a waist of 84 mm. They drove.

Ski Test: Elan Wingman 82

What are the functional black impersonal tests? I have heard many, many times the opinion of the “experts” that an experienced ski expert will always know the skis under any black film. Probably, in theory, it is so because there are not so many skis, and knowing the primary lines is not difficult to guess. But what to do when you know with your head what kind of ski it is, and with your feet, you are sure that this is not it? And let's see.
