The turn-happy 80 millimeter-waisted Magnum 8.0 Ti “felt like a de-tuned World Cup ski,” according to Kasper, echoing a sentiment from other testers who awarded it high scores for carving and stability. “I had full trust in the ski after the first five turns,” Stoeger said. “The only sound you hear is the wind,” Bills added. Both the titanium-reinforced full wood core and sandwich sidewall construction add to stability and edge grip, while the natural rocker geometry from Flipcore technology—where there’s no bending in the molding process—contributes to smoothness. Testers noted that the stiff flex rewards aggressive skiers. All in all, the Magnum 8.0 Ti is “a well-balanced, smooth ski with no surprises,” Witman said. “Stand on it and let it rip through a variety of terrain.”
