The hard-charging Ember "takes a strong lady to tame this beast," said Bremner. "This ski is most in its element in the crud and soft snow." The strong constitution comes from 3D sandwich construction, a poplar wood core, and Dual Torsion Bow Technology, which includes two ribs inserted over the edges for power and edge grip. It has full-length camber, a 95 mm waist and, according to Koehn, "a soft tip and stiffer tail that reacts well in the powder."
