Allmountain models win over more and more skiers each year. The allrounders are characterised by their diversity: as well as on groomed slopes, they promise a pleasurable ride off-piste and on powder, while at the same time saving the skier's energy. Hence, they are perfect for on- and off-piste fans as well as backcountry and powder enthusiasts.

We went to St. Johann-Alpendorf to test the new models of the 2018/19 season and their technical traits. Since looks play an important role in a ski purchase decision as well, particularly nice designs also recieved awards in the category "SnowStyle". High temperatures provided perfect test conditions for this category, and made for a diverse skiing day. Four of the reviewed models convinced us with their "very good" performance, five recieved a "good" rating.

Target: groomed slope skiers, backcountry fans, powder enthusiasts
