Men's Giant slalom ski reviews 2020
Some of the key factors we look out for when reviewing these skis include edgy turn initiation, the quality of long turns, grip on hard pack, stability at high speed, and rebound coming out of turns.
They are designed for more athletic riders with very good technical and physical prowess, who love fast, grippy skis for powerful long turns.
After some difficult years in which the products of Rossignol/Dynastar were poorly rated by Proskilab, it is clear that the group has been able to go uphill and offer products particularly suited to certain market segments.
In these performance-oriented categories, the group's models have become essential. It should be noted that their success is due in part to the R22 "race" plate, which boosts the... Read on
Although the reviewers found the same qualities of the GSX Fusion from Elan, already tested last year, they also found the ski a little more accessible this year.
While its accessibility is good, it is somewhat lower than other models in this comparison. It is above all the performance–accessibility ratio that surprises the most.

The World Cup Rebels i.Speed from Head was reviewed in a little short a size (175 cm for 180 cm requested). With a radius of 18 metres, it is less of the giant type.
The ski is accessible, even "too easy" and gives "good sensations". The performance is good without reaching that of the top of the category. In particular, the reviewers appreciated its ability to enter turns, its curve handling... Read on
The comments we made last year for the RX12 GS from Kästle are absolutely valid this year.
Its overall performance is good. Curve entry, intuitive and incisive, was particularly appreciated by the reviewers.
The ski is versatile, able to slow down the pace or even evolve into skid handling, comfortable on all types of curves. Its intermediate radius, cut shape and certain flexibility make it a very... Read on
