FULL REVIEW

Truth be told, Ramp’s Frenzy was a bit of an anomaly in this test. While we were out scorching groomers and laying trenches in the hardpack, this was the ski that reminded us it didn’t have be as serious as all that. Light, playful, and with a very responsive feel whenever and wherever you wanted to steer it, the Frenzy rewarded any tester who wanted to relax and take full stock of the amazing alpine environment.

It does not feel particularly stable whenever you try and lock in your edge on a long arc, nor does it plow through that little bit of trailside crud. But it does have a refreshingly light swingweight, with a versatility for making short or medium turns, and is a ski we feel intermediate and advanced skiers will really enjoy. It also has unique, cool look. Definitely worth checking out.
