PROSKILAB™ reviewers comments

In this Carvers category, we ask the suppliers to send us skis designed for speed and slicing clean arcs, but less technical and specialized than race-oriented skis. Perfectly happy in this category, Stöckli's Laser SC is one of the best on the market. The model stood out for its overall performance and its consistent, reassuring behavior. However, it got top marks mainly for its progressive qualities and its capacity to push the boundaries performance-wise. It’s a ski you can use every day, but it can also challenge riders’ limits. It’s retained its extremely high-speed qualities in very dynamic turns and has exceptional stability for this size (170 cm) as well as excellent turn performance that allows skiers to carve truly dynamic turns at hair-raising speeds. In addition to this highly positive list of qualities, we would add its amazing energy that makes the ski particularly lively and playful, especially in short turns, where it’s outstanding. A ski that "puts a smile on your face" according to the reviewers. We recommend the Laser SC for good to expert skiers who want a reasonably demanding and very athletic ski.

Manufacturer's remarks

With 72mm underfoot, the Laser SC in Stöckli’s Racing category is a precision tool for demanding trail conditions. An offshoot of competition racing, the SC is a hybrid between a Giant and a Slalom. The TFC technology in the tail makes it comfortable when coming out of turns without losing any of its performance. A hot favourite for all skiers!
