Men's Piste performance ski reviews 2020
They're designed for athletic riders who love carving and are looking for an energic ski that's also great fun to use.
Well known to the Proskilab reviewers and often positioned in the top places, the Laser SC from Stöckli is this year's winner of the "Best Ski" medal in the category.
Performance is on the programme. The ski is lively, quickly enters curves and easily deforms without excess. Its holding to curves is excellent, the ski grips, is very precise and the "pressure reactions are easy to find".... Read on
In this programme that focusses on performance and, above all, the sensations the skier gets, the WorldCup Rebels i. Race from Head did not disappoint the reviewers.
They were unanimous in highlighting the sporting qualities of the ski: "incisive at the beginning of curves", "good grip", "demonic in edge-to-edge transitions". It allows you to move quickly "with a great feeling... Read on
The Speed Zone 12 Ti from Dynastar offers good overall performance and excellent homogeneity.
The performance is indeed there. The ski makes it possible to go fast, even very fast. The level of performance was considered excellent and the ski's behaviour is reassuring. The Speed Zone 12 Ti "goes well into curves" even if it is not as incisive as other skis. The supports are solid and curve handling... Read on
Men's skis 2020 > Piste performance Best Accessibility/Performance!
The Hero Elite LT ("Long Turn") Ti is another ski that is well known to the reviewers, evaluated here with the famous "R22" race plate that can be found on other models of the Rossignol/Dynastar group.
The effectiveness and precision of the Hero Elite LT Ti has been tested in previous years. The R22 plate offers an undeniable plus in terms of performance. The ski has power and offers qualities... Read on
The trend is to merge the piste/all-round and even all-mountain ranges with large width variations. The RC One range from Fischer is no exception to the rule with waists ranging from 72 mm to 86 mm!
We reviewed the narrowest of the range, the RC One 72 Multiflex, which, let's say right away, did not disappoint us.
Overall performance is excellent.
Trigger speed, grip, stability, quality of curve... Read on
The "Best Ski" last year, the MX67 at Kästle keeps all its qualities.
What meets the eye (or the foot?) when testing the MX67 is the compromise between accessibility and agility.
The ski engages curves intuitively, without excessive engagement. A small lean on the edge and hop, the nose takes, the ski deforms and we are already comfortably installed in a curve, naturally rather tight. An honest... Read on
The "Best Ski" last year, the Deacon 74 from Völkl appeared more powerful but also more demanding this year.
The Deacon 74 is made to go fast, very fast and for big curves. The stability of the ski, the curve holding, and the "powerful" grip are high-flying. "A rail", the reviewers say. The ski just asks for acceleration and a lot of energy.
The ski requires adaptation... Read on
