Comparables – Test 2021

Ski Test // 2021-10-24 // By

Shopping for skis? Also consider a few of our favourite skis that are carryovers from last season.

METAL ALL-MOUNTAIN

Salomon Stance and Lumen: Two choice examples of the genre; the faster you ski the better they perform.

Nordica Santa Ana: Its light weight counters the power of a sheet of Titanal for versatility and approachability.

Dynastar M-Pro 90: An Editors’ Choice selection from last winter; smooth performance in all conditions.

NON-METAL ALL-MOUNTAIN

Fischer Ranger FR: The FR stands for freeride, but testers thought “really fun” wherever they took it was more accurate.

DPS Pogoda Piste: A forgiving and fun ski to improve on for intermediates to advanced skiers.

Line Vision: Playful and light but with enough performance to get out of tight spots.

ON-PISTE

K2 Disruption: Keeps the hardest chargers grinning, but is approachable enough for intermediates and up.

Rossignol React and Nova: Race pedigree, tight-turning and power for days; bring your A-game and hold on.

Renoun Atlas: Stable but easy, stiff but forgiving; like all Renoun skis the Atlas is a contradiction our testers loved.
