At 82 mm underfoot, these skis will be lightning-quick from edge to edge, and many skiers who are used to wider skis will be surprised and delighted as to how easy and fun these skis are to turn. The shape gives the skis a 14-meter turn radius at the 159 cm length, and this makes for a super-fun and turny ski that a wide variety of skiers will enjoy. They are approachable and easy to turn, but they also have a high-performance ceiling that makes this model a great choice for ladies who love to charge but also cruise around. The Rocker/Camber/Rocker profile also assists with the overall enjoyment of the ski. The turns are easy to initiate and complete while the camber underfoot makes for a great edge grip with tons of control. Built using Blizzard's Carbon Flipcore W.S.D.
