The hip French brand’s narrowest big mountain model gets a shape modification for 2019/2020, adding a longer, neutral flat section underfoot to this entirely reverse camber ski. Throw in two layers of Titanal to enhance the flex pattern, and the corvus makes turn initiation easy, but remains most at home seeking the fall line in steep terrain. The ski always feels as smooth as polished marble in all conditions. 

STRENGTHS: Flotation, Crud
