Scott Slight 93 2018

Slight by name but beastly in nature, the 2018 Scott Slight 93 is aimed at advanced to expert skiers for all-mountain charging. Reviewers rave about its short turns, but it’s this ski’s ability to handle itself anywhere on the mountain that sets it apart from the crowd. If you love nothing more than lapping out your favourite bowl or tree line in the mornings and then blasting around the piste in the afternoon – or you simply can’t be doing with the hassle of owning more than one pair of skis – the Scott Slight is your perfect match. Based on Scott’s legendary Mission but with a bit more power behind it, the Slight features a 3Dimension sidecut, which sees the tip, tail and middle of the ski having their own separate radii, making for easy turn initiations and stability throughout your turns in all conditions. On the inside, a blend of woven carbon and aramid fibres sandwiched around a lightweight wood core make for reduced weight but high power, stability and edge hold.

Given the 93mm waist, the Scott Slight will perform best after a light dump of fresh snow, although the Pro Tip Rocker 300 means it can hold its own in the deeper stuff, too. And let’s not forget about that high torsional stiffness that means you’ll also be able to bash through crud, make mincemeat of bumpy pistes and hammer past your friends while the snow’s falling.
