Just beautiful to look at. Tasteful and Understated Graphics. Classic beauty that looks like it means business. Nice finishing. Very light weight, smooth flexing in hand with great torsional rigidity.

Spent 5 hours on these. Ran them through the usual test: let them run straight and start with longer radius turns moving into shorter radius turns at speed. This allows me to check the stability and the agility of a ski. Wagner’s are winners! Quiet, smooth running. Very stable and damp. Handled long turns effortlessly, and as you increased speed they Wagner’s became more nimble and tenacious. Smooth transitions turn to turn with quiet, predictable feedback.
I like to force to force a ski into a shorter radius turn at speed just to see what happens. The Wagner’s reacted super quickly and laid down trenches, stored up a little energy and popped you into the next with positive steering and edge control. It liked the quicker pace, but was just as home in a longer turn. This is a completely effective all mountain design. Think BMW coupe, smooth and quiet with huge power and responsiveness when you step on it. Keep in mind that Wagner builds every ski based on The Wagner Skier DNA Profile. Every ski is designed with the entire input coming from the customer.
This ski is a Demo that was designed by Equipe Sports in Stratton, VT for the conditions that are prevalent at Stratton. The design just nailed it for groomers in the East. We are convinced that all of Wagner’s designs will be completely effective. We have spoken with several Wagner owners and they all say the same thing: they really like the DNA design process and the resulting pair of skis. With all the good press Wagner is getting, you might have to get in line for a pair.
