Due to COVID restrictions, last winter we were unable to test skis in the mountains. This means we have some catching up to do this fall. We are very excited to get on some new or renewed 2021 and 2022 skis. Here’s a little preview of which skis we are most interested in.
Armada: Declivity line
Atomic: the new Redster 9-series with the Revo technology, the Maverick skis
Black Crows: the Serpo
Blizzard: the 2021 Brahma and Bonafide, Thunderbird series
Dynastar: 2021 M-Pro and M-free, 2022 Speed line
Elan: we’ve already tested the Voyager and the new Ace series
Fischer: we’ve actually been able to ski the new RC4 Worldcup series and the new Curv series
Head: the renewed Kore line (we already skied the 2021 Supershape and Worldcup Rebels skis)
Nordica: the 2021 Spitfires and renewed Enforcer 94 and 100
Rossignol: the 2021 Sender skis, 2022 Experience line
Salomon: the 2021 Stance line and the 2022 renewed Force skis
Stöckli: 2021 Stormrider series
Völkl: 2021 Blaze skis, Mantra M6 and the 2022 Deacon Master skis and Kanjo
We can’t guarantee there will be a review of every single ski listed here. First, we have to ski it in appropriate terrain and conditions. And then, of course, we have to write the review and publish it. In order for us to write a review, a ski must be either A. a ski we expect to be suggesting a lot in our ski advice, or B. a ski that gets a lot of press by retailers and other not so independent sources – we want to offer our view: always independent and without other underlying motives (such as sponsorships or sales).
