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: Salomon QST 92 16/17

Another model from QST series by Salomon. Not the first skis of this series but that fact will not affect on the result of this test. Every ski is unique and we test them regardless of their history. Only test on the slope without worrying about anything else. Let's start.

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 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.

Ski test: Dynastar Legend X106

Today we're testing the new ski from Dynastar in the freeride category - Dynastar Legend X106, checking if our expectations on ISPO and the reality of the skis. On the exhibition, the Legend series seemed too stiff for speedy skiing. Theoretically, the skis possess everything for stable carving at an uneven slope. But reality can't be more different than what appeared after the tests.

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 Collection Review: Elan Element at ISPO 2018

Elan is arguably the most technological ski manufacturer. In each end, every ski collection they produce there is always something new and technological. Doesn't matter how well it works. This season Elan presented a new ski collection called Element. It uses a technology, that in fact has already been tested before.

Ski Test: Fischer Ranger 102FR 18/17

Today we'll test a very interesting ski model: Fischer Ranger 102FR. The ski has two reasons to be that interesting. Firstly, Fischer never had any decent multipurpose freeride ski with a waist width of 102mm, and this is the first ski of such kind. Secondly, this ski looked very promising at ISPO 2018. So let's test the ski in different conditions.
