Women's Cruisers ski reviews 2019
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.
The Speed Elite from Dynastar got this year's "Best ski 2019" award for this category.
The ski is clearly designed for performance and its short radius (13m) makes it hard to hide its slalom origins. It's great in all areas, including at high speed. Turn initiation is incisive, with rapid edge to edge, great stability in turns and fantastic punch at the end of turns, making it a very energetic... Read on
The Endless Luv is a great surprise from K2. "Easy, simple and comfortable", the ski won over several of the PROSKILAB reviewers. As is often the case with K2, the ski stands out for its balanced flex, its very adaptable character and the judicious balance between smoothness, comfort and user-friendliness.
This "very easy to handle" ski is especially docile and reassuring, and accessible... Read on
The Famous 10 from Rossignol offers an excellent compromise between performance and comfort.
Overall performance is excellent and the ski is made for carving.
Its behaviour is consistent in all situations and the ski is "easy to understand" and "easy to get to grips with" as the PROSKILAB reviewers put it. They particularly liked the ski’s capacity to alternate relaxed skid turns with more aggressive carve turns. The combination of performance, comfort and reliability made it extremely enjoyable.

The Super Joy from Head is a consistent ski that performs well and is happy in all types of ride, including at high speed. The ski is very responsive.
The reviewers felt that it didn't absorb uneven terrain as well as some models, making the ride uncomfortable on bumpy surfaces. It's a high-performing ski that demands a little technical skill.
The Super Joy is a great ski for good to very good riders looking for a model that's both efficient and reliable.
The Kaya Pro from Roxy is an exceptionally user-friendly ski.
It's very "easy to ski", forgiving and enjoyable. The reviewers particularly liked the fact that the ski is "without limits" and yet needs little engagement.
It's also a ski that will help riders to make progress. You can cruise along with skid turns and gradually move on to more technical rides... up to a certain... Read on
The Cloud 12 from Atomic offers amazing performance but falls short when it comes to versatility and accessibility.
The ski is extremely happy at high speed, carving smooth long arcs, its area of predilection, where the ski is incredibly grippy and stable and riders can fearlessly adopt serious angles to carve momentous long turns. The Cloud 12 is an excellent ski for making swooping arcs on the piste at high speed.
On the other hand, once out of its favourite programme, it becomes more demanding. It's difficult to vary... Read on
