Stöckli Laser SX reviews 2017

PROSKILAB™ reviewers' comments

Without a shadow of doubt, the Laser SX from Stöcklï is a machine designed to carve and carve again. The ski is made to carve out wonderfully accurate turns with the precision of a... Swiss knife!

Turn initiation may not be the best, but once you're into the curve, the ski is amazing. Unflappable, even at high speed on hard pack, the ski stays on track, seeking to round off the turn as naturally as possible. What's more, its phenomenal grip lets you ride out radical angles. As one reviewer remarked: "it invites you to lean out further and further"...

Review: Pros

  • Incredible grip and stability in turns
  • Super carver with a natural inclination to round off turns
  • Excellent snow contact
  • Simple to operate if you stick to its programme

Review: Cons

  • Inertia and a feeling of weight underfoot
  • Not so comfortable in skid turns or slide turns

Manufacturer's remarks

The offshoot of a more accessible Giant slalom ski. Like a ski-cross tool, it's not only comfortable but also has incredible grip in short and long turns.
