With the Allround models you can enjoy the slopes all day long without unnecessarily straining your power reserves. Because instead of full throttle and highly athletic performance, the main focus here is on comfort, enjoyment and skiing fun. Nevertheless, the skis are technically very well equipped and anything but boring. Find out which all-round models performed best in the 2022/2023 WorldSkitest.
Energy-saving skiing fun
When it comes to all-rounders, it's not about setting top times, but having fun on the slopes all day long. They are forgiving, easy to turn and effort-saving to ride. That's why they are ideal for less experienced and pleasure skiers who find the high-performance models too aggressive. Another plus point of the Allround models is their attractive price-performance ratio.
The all-rounders may belong to the middle class of ski models, but their performance should definitely not be underestimated! The tested models at the WorldSkitest 2022/2023 in Silvretta Montafon were able to convince the testers and have consistently received very good ratings, the test winner even got the grade "excellent".
