    Ski Test: Volkl Deacon XTD

    Well, fascinating test today. Interesting both because the skis are from the new collection, because the skis are from a category that seems not so interesting at all, so that our testers didn’t want to spend time on it, and because the skis are created for beginners, and when combined with boots with 110 flex it is possible to look at them through the eyes of the people for whom they were created.

    Ski Test: Fischer RcOne 73

    Today we are testing another new model from Fischer from the RcOne series, which made its first appearance this year and replaced its predecessor. It would be sad to find out that these are worse than the last ones because it becomes very annoying to what the trend where new models are significantly worse than the old models.

    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: Elan Amphibio 14Ti

    Today we tested an old, but an interesting ski model by Elan - Amphibio 14Ti. We wanted to see if the ski has undergone any (detrimental) changes since the last year and if the ski can still be called one of the best beginner ski out there, taking new models by Elans competitors into account. After all, it is never a bad idea to ski on a good ski.

    Ski Test: DPS Foundation Cassiar F82

    Everything has its purpose and function. But it is not forbidden to use some things not as they were meant to be used. Sometimes such changes yield exciting and unexpected results. So now, let's see what happens when a manufacturer known for ski-touring skis makes a carving ski model.

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: Scott Slight 18/19

    At first, there was no apparent reason for Scott to issue Slight series, at the end of the day, they already had Black Majic which was quite popular at the time. But after two seasons everything became pretty clear.
