SKI REVIEWS YOU CAN TRUST

Women's Cruisers ski reviews 2018


In this category, we select and review skis with a focus on harmony. We look for models that offer a well-balanced mix of performance/comfort/accessibility. These skis perform well but require limited physical engagement, absorb the terrain well, are happy in all snow conditions and all turns, and can easily switch between carving and skid turns.

They're ideal for intermediary to good riders who want to make progress on a very versatile ski, or more experienced skiers who want to ride and enjoy themselves all day long without burning themselves out.

Rossignol Famous 10 reviews 2018

Best performance!

The PROSKILAB reviewers came back beaming after riding the Famous 10 by Rossignol! The ski is an incredible performer, especially in turns where it really excels. It’s a very versatile model that can vary turn radius and style. But it’s mainly the playful and dynamic behaviour that sets it apart from its rivals and that riders will love, at least, as long as they’re willing to get actively involved,... Read on

Elan Insomnia reviews 2018

Women's skis 2018 > Cruisers

Elan’s Insomnia is certainly not a model you’ll fall asleep on. The ski is globally efficient, especially in long turns, where its lively and precise. The reviewers loved its strong and relatively high-strung character. In terms of comfort, there’s nothing more to say: the ski cushions the terrain well and doesn’t need much physical effort. The stiff tail makes it quite demanding though and requires careful positioning, which makes it less accessible and stopped it from getting to the top of the podium. The Insomnia well... Read on

Head Epic Joy SLR reviews 2018

Women's skis 2018 > Cruisers

The Epic Joy by Head has obviously put the emphasis on lightness, an important factor for ladies' skis. The ski is incredibly light underfoot. Very easy in turn initiation, happy in skid turns, it’s really easy to steer until you reach medium speeds. At full throttle, especially on hard pack, it slows down. The ski loses its stability, pressure is less consistent, and it's a lot more challenging to steer.
The Epic Joy is a good early stage ski that would certainly have shined in our old "Intermediate women's cruisers"... Read on

Nordica Sentra SL7 Ti EVO reviews 2018

Women's skis 2018 > Cruisers

Tested a bit short in this category (156cm for 165cm requested), the Sentra SL7 Ti Evo is an excellent touring ski, but unfortunately is not versatile/nimble enough to do well in this Top-of-the-Range Female category. It's amazingly simple to use, consistent in skid turns, and rotation is a piece of cake. On the other hand, it’s a lot more challenging when we step up the pace: it loses stability and pressure when you increase the speed, and doesn’t particularly enjoy carving. Recommended for good riders looking for facility and... Read on
