Ski Review 2022/2023: Ladies Allround

You want to experience relaxed skiing fun, improve your technique or simply enjoy long ski days from morning to night? Then the skis in the all-round category are the right choice for you. The energy-saving comfort models offer a great combination of performance, style and price. Let us introduce you to the winners of the WorldSkitest in the Ladies Allround category.

Reliable partners for relaxed skiing fun

Even if athletic ambition is not the focus in this category, speedy descents are definitely possible with the Allround models. They run smoothly, are easy to steer and spare power reserves. This makes the Allrounders just as suitable for beginners as for more experienced skiers who simply want to spend the whole day on the slopes without falling into bed dead tired in the evening. In addition, they can also convince with their attractive price-performance ratio.

The all-round skis are less aggressive than the high-performance models. However, the fact that the ski industry is also working at a high level with mid-range models is shown by the ratings in the 2022 WorldSkitest, with all women's all-rounders achieving the test grade "very good".
