Ski Test: Line Sakana

I honestly don’t know how these skis fell on those tests in which I tested them, nor how they should be tested under such conditions, but there are skis, there is a mountain, and there is not the slightest reason not to try them in practice. After all, it’s really somehow people ask themselves how such skis will work on a prepared track if you buy them as the only skis for all occasions. It was in this vein that I decided to check them: what if I have only such skis and I arrived at the resort and there is nothing besides the track.


Ski Test: Völkl Deaon 84

There are many interesting points in ski testing. Of course, it is very interesting to test new models. But even more interesting is testing updated models. Especially those to which there were no sympathies and, in principle, it doesn’t matter whether they became worse or better - just testing for the sake of testing. Today, just such a case: on the test, updated, well-known skis that on the one hand seemed to be quite good, but on the other hand clearly required some changes because they didn’t fall into any category of skiers. Well, we check that it has become better or worse.


Ski Test: Atomic Redster X5

Today on the test day's agenda are the easiest to ski, but the most difficult to evaluate skis. I have been testing them for several years, nothing has changed in them, but every time on the test it is especially difficult for me to give them an assessment and make a final decision on the question: are they good or not? But it is precisely this answer that readers and viewers looking at the report from the test look for in tests. Well, another test and another difficulty assessment.


Ski Test: Elan GSX

Being well acquainted with these skis, going onto a hard frosty track with morning velveteen, I honestly admit, I did not expect anything heroic from them, realizing that everything I like about them: longitudinal softness, comfort and variability in the rhythm of rotation - in such conditions should work against them. And what happened in the end? Let's get it right.


Ski Test: Atomic Redster X9 S

Here you go and here you go - bam! and the second shift ... Here you are testing, testing - nothing changes from year to year, I decided to conduct an experiment and try the well-known skis in new boots and - Whack! The skis have changed. This is exactly what happened to me in the new Atomic Redster X9 ski season when testing boots with 110 hardness. And now the details.


Ski Test: Dynastar SpeedZone 4x4 82

The dynastar not only did not please us with good skis for a long time, but rather, upset them with the disappearance. I am still pleased to recall their successful series of track wagons that were very similar to the modern XDR from Salomon and which disappeared without a trace. Well, today in the tests we check in practice a new model and see what good and new they are ready to give us in skating.


Ski Test: Volkl Deacon 80

Tourists with a waist of 80 - definitely there is no more popular, popular and sought-after ski category. The secret of popularity is simple as skiing for vacationers, beginners, not experts. And such skis should be soft, loyal, easy to ride, comfortable and fun. It is from this position that it is necessary to evaluate the skis of this class, which we will now do with the novelty of this season from Völkl.


Equipment Review: Arva EVO5 Avalanche Transceiver

Whether we like it or not, skiing freeride is dangerous - avalanches have come and go, and will go. We cannot cancel them and therefore we must do everything possible to reduce the likelihood of getting into them and their negative impact on our lives. Using avalanche sensors (beeper) helps to quickly find a person who has got into an avalanche. Arva company specializing in avalanche equipment in the new season presents a new beeper - Evo5.

Ski Review: Dynastar SpeedZone 4x4

The Dinastar somehow doesn’t historically work out with track universals: either there are no successful models, then they appear, but for unknown and unknown reasons they quickly disappear without leaving any historical technological trace. And in the new season we are waiting for a new milestone in the history of this category - the new SpeedZone 4x4 series. Let's look inside the series and try to understand in theory what awaits us and how relevant it can be to skating.


Ski Review: Line Vision

You can love the ski tour, you can not love or even completely deny it, but, in any case, the ski tour is defined as a trend in the ski industry and towards the ski tour, in one way or another, all ski companies will leave. So Line, with all its park bias, could not resist the temptation to comply with the trend and in the new season presented, well, not so much a touristic, but close to this topic, Vision series.
