    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.

    Ski Test: Elan Amphibio 16Ti2 18/19

    Elan Amphibio 16Ti2 has a long and complicated history. There were times when the ski has not been fully understood, and times when it was merely tolerated. This season, the ski is generally very good and definitely worth testing to see if the ski is still good.

    Ski test: Fischer Ranger 108Ti 18/19

    Fischer Ranger 108Ti is an old ski, where "old" means respected, tested, and perfected. It was tested in all conditions imaginable. But today was special - visibility, snow condition, and many other factors were just right for texting this particular ski. It was the time when a test ride became fun skiing experience.
