Ski Review 2021/2022: Ladies High Performance

You are looking for high-quality skis for sporty carving pleasure that still offer stability and precision at high speed? Then the new High Performance skis for women are the right choice. The sophisticated models combine sportiness with comfort and can still be turned easily and effortlessly in the upper speed range. We have tested them and can say: These High Performers are really fun on the slopes!

>> To the Ski Review Ladies High Performance for the season 2022/2023

Technical and sporty high quality

The High Performance models are suitable for technically demanding skiers who like to step on the gas. They are agile, feel at home in the mid to upper speed range, but cost less strenght and are less aggressive than GS models.

They were tested this year on the Mölltal Glacier in Carinthia i.a. by ski pros such as Conny Hütter and Alexandra Meissnitzer. We at Snow-Online were also part of the WorldSkitest and put the new women's models under the microscope for you. The results show how high the quality of the Ladies High Performance models is: Four times there was the test score "excellent" and six times the rating "very good".

Target group: Sporty and highly athletic female skiers

Test winner: Atomic Cloud C12 Servo

The winner in the category Ladies High Performance is the Cloud C12 Servo from Atomic. With a top score of 8.8, it comes out on top especially in the "Long turns" category. No wonder, after all, it is equipped with Atomic's Servotec technology from the Redster racing series. This power steering for skis ensures stability and smoothness, but at the same time agility and liveliness in the turns. This makes the Cloud C12 Servo perfect for speed queens.

Second place goes to Switzerland for the Laser MX from Stöckli. The particularly lightweight women's model is extremely sporty. The sport carver convinces with a balanced performance and is gentle on the power reserves. This is primarily thanks to Stöckli's Softflex technology for women and the lightweight construction of the ski.

With 40.3 points and an "excellent" rating, Fischer's The Curv DTX WS also made it onto the podium of the high performers. Thanks to its Radical Triple Radius, it outperforms its competitors especially in the fast, short turns. But it also delivers a top performance in the other categories. Because The Curv is visually impressive, too, it also takes the silver medal in "SnowStyle".
