Ski Rating: AllMountain

Skis that in the Russian version can be called "Universal" or, more precisely - track universals. Probably the most popular category among average skiers. They are expected from them both an excellent grip on hard, and softness of sliding on broken soft snow, and the dynamics of sports skis. But do they always live up to expectations?

This year, tests were carried out in Bad Kirheim and the skis got a hard morning track. Not quite ideal conditions for checking patency, but corduroy is not the worst riding conditions. Naturally, on such a track, the skis needed more grip and tenacity, and it was precisely those who secured it and took first places.
