The very best Race SL skis offer an amazing edge hold, fast acceleration and a sound stability for all those skilled enough to handle them. Though technically demanding, they present the opportunity for incredible experiences both on the slope and in the slalom course.

The highest level of slalom skiing

Race SL skis are excellent for short radii and aggressive turns while maintaining high levels of speed. Tested in the World Cup venue of Bad Kleinkirchheim, skiing professionals such as Fritz Strobl and Daniel Danklmaier were highly impressed by their quality. Many of the skis managed to score a “very good” grade, with three of them even reaching an “excellent” level. Winter sports enthusiasts with the necessary athleticism, skills, strength and stamina will thoroughly enjoy skiing with our test winners.

Target group: Athletic and highly athletic male skiers as well as ski racers.
