Men's Carvers ski reviews 2020
They're designed for athletic riders who love carving and are looking for an energic ski that's also great fun to use.
The Stöckli Laser SC is well-known to the Proskilab testers and often ranks very high in the test. This year, it won the “Best Ski” award in this category.
Performance is great. The ski is lively, it enters the turn quickly, and flexes easily, but not excessively. The edge hold is excellent, the ski is grippy, very precise, and “very responsive.” The rebound at the end of the... Read on
This category is oriented towards performance and fun, and the Head Worldcup Rebels i.Race did not disappoint the testers.
All of the testers were impressed by the liveliness of the ski: “snappy turn initiation,” “grippy,” “phenomenal edge-to-edge transfers.” You can go fast “and still feel incredibly safe.”
The ski is at its best when it is on the edge.... Read on
The Dynastar Speed Zone 12 Ti has great qualities and is very reliable.
Overall performance is good. You can go fast on this ski, very fast in fact. The testers thought that the level of performance was excellent and that the ski inspired confidence. The Speed Zone 12 Ti “goes into the turn easily,” but it is not as snappy as other skis. Edge grip is solid, and the ski holds the line really well.... Read on
Men's skis 2020 > Carvers Best Accessibility/Performance!
The Hero Elite LT ("Long Turn") Ti is another ski that is well-known to the testers. This year, we reviewed it with the famous R22 race plate that is also found on other models in the Rossignol/Dynastar group.
We found the same level of performance and precision of the Hero Elite LT Ti tested in previous years. The R22 plate enhances performance for sure. The ski has power and possesses characteristics... Read on
The trend in the industry is to merge the frontside, all-round, and all-mountain ranges together and to offer a variety of widths. The Fischer RC One range is no exception and has waists ranging from 72 mm to 86 mm!
We tested the narrowest ski in the range, the RC One 72 Multiflex, and we can say right off the bat, it did not disappoint our testers.
Overall performance is excellent. Quick turn initiation,... Read on
The Kästle MX67 won the "Best Ski" award last year, and this year’s model has the same great qualities.
The first thing we noticed when we tested the MX67 was the balance between accessibility and agility. The ski engages in the turn easily with little effort. Just roll the ski on edge and the tip bites, the ski flexes, and you are already comfortably in a turn, which is of course pretty... Read on
Winner of "Best Ski" last year, the Völkl Deacon 74 is more powerful but also more demanding this year.
The Deacon 74 is made for going fast, very fast, and for long turns. The stability of the ski, its ability to hold the line throughout the turn, and its “powerful edge grip" are all amazing. The testers said it was like “skiing on a rail.” The ski just wants to accelerate,... Read on
