The Bamboo does have some of its namesake in its core—lightweight, yet durable Bamboo. It also has a layer of shock-absorbing basalt and a single layer of titanium for liveliness. Powerline technology adds a bar along the middle of the ski to reduce vibration and rocker in the generous tip adds maneuverability. The Bamboo's best scores were for carving and stability. Curtis called it "an ego ski. It's consistent and a good one for intermediate through advanced skiers to keep progressing on." "The ski carves well and turns gently in soft bumps," Muecke said. "It feels solid underfoot, but lightweight so it favors mellow skiers."
