«Totally awesome!» Take note: With the Stöckli Stormrider 85 Motion, it will be better to pull your hair back so you don't ruin your coiffure! In reality, of course, you will want a helmet, because the brilliance of the Stormrider 85 Motion expects speedy skiing. By nature, it is simply not designed for carving. Let me explain: In those places where the majority of skiers lend assistance in carving, the Stormrider 85 Motion offers skiers the freedom to decide whether they want to abort a turn or not. That is fantastic for good skiers; however, it could be tenuous for others who are still seeking to master carving and are still working out how to handle supersonic speed. Since the ski is however extremely fluid, it can be ridden as the skier desires. Its magical ability in gliding across the snow ensures that you feel secure all of the time. In sum: Those who shy away from bigger goals will find in this ski one that imparts security. Even if you know that you need improvement and that you must learn the technique to master the third part of the turn, you can learn from this jewel. Its level of stability is simply top rate both on- and off piste. You can say the same thing for its grip, which still maintains a certain playfulness. In addition, this ski has great flotation despite its limited width, and it benefits completely from its ideal balance. What can you say, when anything at all, that the ski is a little more difficult to handle in short turns as it is in long-radius turns. Never mind, those are just details. For good and very good skiers. Super!
