2018 Rossignol Hero Master R21 WC review

Giant slalom

BEST SKI

Best ski 2018

All the reviewers agreed: like the Speedzone Master from Dynastar, Rossignol’s Hero Master R21 WC is a "fighter jet"... a real Giant ski, carved for very high speed and long turns. It's hard to find a better performer in this category if you don’t include FIS competition skis. The Hero Master R21 WC is striking for its great grip and stability, both judged exceptional by the reviewers, so you can zip down the runs at... Read on

2018 Elan GSX Fusion review

Giant slalom

AWARD

Best Accessibility!

The GSX Fusion from Elan, out-distanced by the Speedzone Master, Hero Master and Dobermann in terms of pure performance, is not the most efficient ski in this review. However, a clever combination of responsiveness, fluidity and user-friendliness makes it a very engaging and enjoyable ski. It's easy to handle and intuitive, and you only need a few minutes to get to grips with it. The ski is great in all types of turn.... Read on

2018 Nordica Dobermann GSR EVO review

Giant slalom

The Dobermann GSR Evo from Nordica gives and asks for more! The ski, which is relatively flexible at the tip and stiff at the tail, needs a little time to adapt. It’s a ski with character that kicks back a lot of energy so you need to learn to master it. But once you’ve got the hang of it, it’s sheer joy. The Dobermann GSR Evo is a real Giant ski which performs well in all conditions. The ski is smooth in short turns and has a certain fluidity on soft snow, making it very versatile. It will definitely please good to excellent riders looking for... Read on

2018 Head WC Rebels i.Speed review

Giant slalom

Coming in 6th in a review that tests the best skis on the market is not bad at all. The WC i.Speed is a good ski but, like its Slalom cousin, unfortunately lacks some of the oomph found in its race-inspired rivals in the category. The reviewers appreciated the ski’s overall consistency and conviviality, especially in medium turns. We recommend this ski for intermediary to very good riders who love medium turns and want to up their performance.
