If you enjoy sporty, swift runs down perfectly groomed slopes, the "Men High Performance" models are for you. This type of ski has grown increasingly popular with sporty to athletic skiers in the past few years. Precise, short radi work just as well as long high-speed turns. Hence, these skis are perfect for all those who find (giant) slalom too fast or aggressive, while allrounders are too gentle.
Top Quality For the Slopes!
The goal of this review was to find the best High Performance models of the 2018/19 season. So we had them vetted at St. Johann Alpendorf, in order to assess their technical as well as visual traits. Is it easy to achieve long or short radi? How are effort and edge grip? Is the ski rather steady, or does it flutter on hard, uneven slopes?
The choice was not an easy one, as all models showed high quality, and surprised with new technical sophistications. Two of the reviewed skis recieved an "excellent" rating, eight of them were "very good".
