Ski Rating: High Performance

Test results of high-performance men's skis on tests according to the Worldskitest program. In this category, skis are collected for experts who are well versed in technology, but not specifically focused on sports skiing, but who are looking for versatility in skiing rhythms in skiing and high efficiency in dynamic skiing on any piste.

According to the testing conditions, the skis got a rather steep and tough track with ice sections on which the ski efficiency in grip and tenacity for ice was especially valuable. Not surprisingly, more rigid and tenacious skis worked much better under such conditions. But, tests are tests - ski testing in real skiing conditions and test conditions were absolutely real.
