A very versatile all-mountain ski that differs from many of the other manufacturers skis in that they are a relatively narrow 75 mm at the waist. This means that you need to have good technique in the back-country to stay afloat- plus have the speed and control of line to let them run and build up the pressure underneath to give you the float.
The Stormrider XL’s and XXL’s are great all-mountain skis though. They carve with precision, grip like demented dentists and are very happy to be hammered down the crud at a good rate of knots.
Best for confirmed and aggressive advanced skiers or experts.
