        I got to demo these frontside monsters and they are rad!

        Powder: 7/10
        The invictus 95 have rocker for floating in fresh snow. I took them through about 8-10" of snow and they turned and float perfect. Slash and dash through everything, these things are killer. The wide tips cut through crud and more.

        Groomers and hardpack: 9/10
        Once again, these skis kill it. They have really nice turn initiation, and from edge to edge they are perfect. You have to get up to speed to hit really good turns, but that what I like about them. The rocker and early rise makes them turn like a short ski, while the metal strip keeps them super stable at speed.

        Jumps, booters: 6/10
        One thing I noticed about these skis was the weight. They were a little sluggish in the air and I was really only able to shifty and do simple grabs. Still, I had a blast on these puppies

        Trick: 4/10
        These are frontside skis, so they were used like a frontside ski. Still, I was able to do a few nose butter 3's and some tripods, but other than that they were too heavy for anything else. You might be able to throw a 3, but anything else is pushing it.

        Altogether I give these dope sticks a 8.5/10, the only downfall being the weight.
