        Overall

        A narrowish freestyle ski at 78mm. Excellent for skiing hardpack. Excellent in the pipe. Average durability.

        Performance

        On groomers and hardpack they are incredibly good for a freestyle ski. They have a reasonably narrow waist at 78mm and a decent sidecut for carving around the mountain and getting grip on ice. The torsional stiffness also helps edge grip in most conditions.
        Due to their narrow nature they are not so good in soft powder but can handle heavy stuff very well for their type.
        On rails they are fine but they excel in the pipe. The flex is perfect and they have a lot of pop.

        Design

        The top sheet design is quality and although is green, relects light in blue giving a pearlescent look to the ski. The base design is cool with 80s throwback text and Alice Cooper's eyes at the tip and tail as well as his face on the topsheet.

        Value

        They are average price. Just average.

        Characteristics

        A medium to stiff, consistent flex throughout. They have reasonably good torsional stiffness.

        Durability

        They are well put together but the topsheet can crack and chip easily. Especially at the tip and tail when carrying them around. The edges are not very thick also, and many people complain about them cracking easily on rails.
