    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.

    Ski Test: K2 Mindbender 90Ti

    It is understandable why the soft allround freeride skis are so popular - such skis are good for both on- and off-piste skiing. The waist width of about 90 is perfect for a piste. If you want more freeride - just take a wider model. In comparison with stiffer on-piste, skis of this category allow smoother skiing on bumpy pistes as well as better control in general. That is why this category is one of the favourites among the most skiers. K2 had many decent skis for backside freeride and ski tourism but never really had allround freeride skis, what would be controllable, soft and dynamic.

    Ski test: Völkl 100Eight 17/18

    Testing skis is not easy. Sometimes it seems like you know everything about certain skis, so you don't expect a lot from them. However in reality due to different reasons like snow condition or slope angle, a ski starts to work not as you have expected, making you change your opinion. Völkl 100Eight is a well-known ski, but let's see if this ski can cause such opinion shift.

    Equipment Review: Rossignol Alltrack LT at ISPO 2018

    Each new technological solution in the ski industry can be tested by the "Rossi-Test", meaning, that if a technology is implemented by Rossignol after a couple of years, then this is a good technology. This season, the test was successfully passed by the technology of combined alpine and TLT boots. It appeared in the AlTrack LT boot series.

    Ski Collection Review: Head Kore 18/19 at ISPO 2018

    Ski test: Armada Tracer 98

    Since the last year, Armada Tracer 98 didn't change at all, so this year it was interesting for us to see how this ski performs on a piste. Such freeride and ski-tour ski with a waist narrower than 100mm is bought mainly for frontside freeride - the combination of on- and off-piste riding. However, most of those who test it do this off-piste. Let's fix this mistake and test the ski in on-piste conditions.
