Men's Easy Cruisers ski reviews 2019
These skis are ideal for intermediate riders who have mastered skid turns and want to make more technical progress toward carving turns.
In this category, we are looking for skis that are easy for lower level skiers to use, but that will also allow them to progress to carving.
The Speed Zone 7 from Dynastar is a perfect match for this category.
The ski is very accessible, intuitive, easy to handle: "It turns on its own." Very little physical effort is needed and the ski responds to the slightest movement of the skier. It... Read on
K2 skis are always a hit with testers. Their skis offer a well-balanced compromise that cleverly blends accessibility, reliability, and performance. The Konic 78 is no exception and was ranked one of the best skis in this category.

The ski is remarkably accessible.... Read on

Unfortunately, since the test length was too short, the ski was less... Read on
The Doberman Spitfire TI FDT spits fire... It may be a bit too much for this category where we're looking for skis that lower level skiers can handle.
This ski is really dynamic. Turn initiation, edge-to-edge transfer, precision in carved turns, and stability are all excellent. A "good carving ski," it holds the line even at high speed and allows the skier to take big edge angles.
Despite... Read on
PROSKILAB only reviews the very best skis on the market. So, if the V-Shape 4 from Head is in last place, it is nothing to be ashamed of. Its score proves that the ski has great qualities.
It performs better than the other skis in this category but is less forgiving. It is a little difficult to do well in a category that values ease of use more than anything else.
The ski's overall performance... Read on
