You master small and big turns on red slopes, you like to carve, have fun and enjoy all snow conditions. You want to be able to ski all day long and make progress. You will then prefer a well-cut, dynamic, playful and tolerant ski.
To do this, choose noble materials, such as wood, titanium, carbon, which give more life and resistance to the skis. A wider 75-80mm skate width, with a slightly wide tip, will allow you to have a more precise ski that will remain tolerant. They will allow you to better evolve on all snow conditions and to progress without getting tired, so that you can enjoy your whole day of skiing.
You want to carve curves on hard snow, carving from the beginning to the end of the day: you then prefer a narrow ski with a skate, more rigid and dynamic. A downhill ski reinforced with carbon or titanium plates will give back your energy by creating speed. It is an exclusive and demanding ski.
