The WC RC is a top-end retail race ski with club racers, expert skiers and instructors in mind. With an over-sized side-cut, generous carves and an easy initiation into your turns the WC RC’s relatively easy to handle. Probably a little more solid than the expectations of many a non-race experienced expert skier the RC’s in this guise are built for high-speed, medium to long radius carves on immaculately groomed runs.
You can really appreciate the Flowflex and the ski is ultra-smooth, gripping on the firmest of snows and reassuringly stable when set on the edge.
As an “all-day long” ski then they could be limiting and you will need a good level of fitness – as a ski for early morning blasts when the groomers are quiet, the pistes firm then the WC RC’s are great fun.
