PROSKILAB™ reviewers comments

This year, the Stormrider 95 by Stöckli topped the podium in this very competitive category. The reviewers were unanimous about the features of this particularly versatile model. The basic qualities are certainly there: good grip, turn performance, flotation in deep powder... But it’s the ski’s stability and its capacity to adapt easily on all terrains, even the most difficult, that really carried the day. The way it cuts through choppy snow and lumps of crud is mind-blowing. You just need to position yourself and push off, and the ski will do all the work whatever the conditions. It’s fantastic for good riders who'll zip down the slopes like champions... Shaped for long turns and speed, it features a relatively long radius (+17m in the size tested), but is less intuitive and easy to handle at slower speeds and in short turns. On groomed trails, it does pretty well in all turns, but lacks playfulness. The Stormrider 95 is becoming a benchmark in this highly competitive segment. It’s a remarkable ski that we recommend for good to expert riders looking for a tool that’s both nimble and versatile, particularly in freeride.
