The Brahma has gained a cult-like following for being a lot of ski wrapped in a narrow profile, and the stronger testers have always loved it for that reason. Built with two sheets of metal sandwiching a poplar-beech wood core, the Brahma maintains liveliness thanks to a bi-directional carbon insert in the shovel and tail. Veteran testers especially loved the intuitive and balanced feel the Brahma is known for. 

STRENGTHS: Stability at Speed, Hard Snow

WEAKNESS: Forgiveness
