Scott Slight 93 [click]
Type of ski : All Mountain 50/50

Let’s be honest; the Slight 93 proposed by Scott is not a true All Mountain ski and, despite its qualities, it struggles in this category. Its shape and behaviour betray its piste DNA. So it’s no surprise that the ski is very happy on the groomed runs where it’s great at everything: turn initiation, turn performance, bite, etc. It really excels in short turns. Sheer bliss. On the other hand, because of the small waist (93 mm), the short size of the model tested (175 cm for 180-185 cm requested) and its highly carved shape, its behaviour in freeride fell far short of the champions in this category. In other words, it’s a pleasant, easy ski, with a playful nature that deserves a very good place in the All Mountain/freeride category... and it’s just amazing when there are a few centimetres of fresh powder on the slopes.

Liked: Excellent performance on the piste User-friendly Good grip A light ski Nimble ...

Disliked: The highly carved shape hampers performance in freeride, Tendency to oversteer ...

Scott The ski W's [click]
Type of ski :

The SKi W's from Scott has the same qualities as its peer designed for men. It’s a relatively springy ski with progressive flex. The reviewers liked its accessibility, its overall behaviour, and its great agility and fluidity on soft snow. The tip tends to bend slightly in chopped up crud, but it’s the price for its user-friendliness. Its flexibility means that you should avoid getting one that's too short. The size of the model reviewed (160cm for 165cm requested) meant that it was judged insufficient by many of the reviewers. The Ski W's is an excellent choice for riders looking for a versatile, easy and enjoyable ski.

Liked: Accessible Fun and enjoyable A progressive ski that helps riders improve their technical skills Good grip ...

Disliked: A flexible ski that tends to bend in the crud...
