PROSKILAB™ reviewers comments

In this "Female Top-of-the-Range" category, we’re looking above all for consistent skis that combine performance, accessibility, comfort and versatility. The one-quiver skis stand out for their clever compromises. The Luv Sick 80 Ti performs well in all areas, with emphasis squarely on performance. Not content to perfectly meet the demanding criteria, the Luv Sick 80 Ti has added a few extras that the reviewers loved. First, the 80 mm-waist ski is happy in all snow conditions and even encourages riders to go off-piste when conditions are right. In addition, it's responsive, smooth and intuitive, offering riders a great deal of pleasure. The reviewers gave it a "hot favorite" label. The Luv Sick 80 Ti is aimed at a wide range of skiers, from intermediary to expert who’re looking for a model that will ensure plenty of thrills for very versatile on-trail use as well as easy off-trail rides.
