The E/Flex 8 is built for the intermediate to advanced skier who doesn’t want to drop the cash on an Amphibio ski with the Fusion system. The slight tip rocker shortens the contact length to help the ski turn easier, and the company says its wood and synthetic core helps keep the ski lighter and less expensive while keeping its torsional rigidity. The QT w/binding system is likely to be less responsive than the Fusion, but many skiers may not notice or care about the difference.
