Test / Review Ski Vist SL Race

Mini Vist - SkiReviewer

 

The Vist SL Race model is the successor of the old Vist Super Front Tre. It is basically the same ski but with a facelift. However, this could still be the best Slalom ski available in the market today. I’ve been skiing for more than a decade and a half, and I have done it on many, many SL skis. None, absolutely none, of those are as good as the Vist SL Race.

Test / Review Ski Vist R Rocker

Mini Vist - SkiReviewer

 

The new Vist R Rocker is an old friend with new looks and renewed energy. It is the successor of the brand´s race carver, the Super Front Four.

The Vist R Rocker is a great race carver. It is a ski designed for speed and it shows. But one of its main amazing factors is how it behaves when the snow conditions get ugly. On the hard pack, it is obviously a very good performant ski. However, it is also more than a good ally when things get nasty such as with crud snow or a more than a hand deep spring snow. It just sails above anything.

Test / Review Ski Vist GS Race

Mini Vist - SkiReviewer

 

The Vist GS Race is one of the best GS skis available in the market today. It is one of the few selection of GS skis that still comply with the old FIS rules. Therefore, this is one of those skis which will take you to another level of skiing, one step beyond the common boundaries.

Test / Review Ski Vist Super Front Four

 

SEASON  2014-2015  UPDATE

As for this next 2014-2015 season, the Vist Super Front Four has been superseded by the new Vist R Rocker. You can find the Test / Review for this model here.

 

Mini Vist - SkiReviewer

 

The Vist Super Front Four is a very special Race Carver. And that has always meant a GS ski adapted for civil use. A ski designed for long wide turns, high speed and beyond. The Vist Super Front Four complies with that essential premise in this category, but fortunately it does so along with some more things.

Test / Review Ski Vist Super Front Tre

 

SEASON 2014-2015 UPDATE

As for this next 2014-2015 season, the Vist Super Front Tre has been superseded by the new Vist Race SL. You can find the Test / Review for this model here.

Mini Vist - SkiReviewer

 

The Vist Super Front Tre is quite probably the best SL ski available today. Yes. Straightforward. I have no problem by saying this. I can be wrong since I haven’t tested all available SL skis from this season. However, I’ve been skiing for several seasons, and I have done it on many, many SL skis. None, absolutely none, of those are as good as the Vist Super Front Tre. The only one that can be put somewhere near the SF3 is its cousin, the Nava SL. I haven’t found an SL from Rossignol, nor Dynastar, nor Atomic, nor Fischer (to name the ones I’ve owned) that are similar to it. The only common characteristic among them is that they are all SL skis.

Test / Review Ski Vist Super Mountain One

 Mini Vist - SkiReviewer

The Vist Super Mountain One is one of the greatest multipurpose skis in the market. It is the easiest and most comfortable ski in the Vist range. But don’t be fooled because of that behaviour. The SMOne has some hidden surprises for us. Would you like to spend some time skiing with your son in a nice and easy slope? You’ll be fine with the Vist Super Mountain One. Do you want to be able to follow that ski instructor recommended by a friend while he rides from one place to another at the speed of light? Bring the SMOne with you. Have you found a nice and narrow zip line of bumps? With the Vist Super Mountain One, a piece of cake. Would you like to train a bit your side-sliding skills? Yep, you guessed it. As you’ve seen, here is back again the Vist’s version of “you want it, you have it”.

Test / Review Ski Vist Super Front Two

 

SEASON  2014-2015  UPDATE

As for this next 2014-2015 season, the Vist Super Front Two has been discontinued. Take a look at the new Vist Collection by clicking here

 

Mini Vist - SkiReviewer

 

The Vist Super Front Two is one of the two general public oriented GS skis from Vist. However, we should keep in mind this is a fast, powerful, racing ski. It’s got an excellent medium radius turn with an unbelievable clean cut feel (a bit thin, though). On the edge, it transmits a very pleasant sensation of control and precision. Again, in wide open turns the sensations are the same as in the medium turns. Even though is not as fast as the old GS model, the stability is the same.

Mini Vist - SkiReviewer

 

In the 2011-2012 season’s test that I wrote for a popular Spanish website, I described the Vist Cross Over Two as the wolf and the lamb put together. And I just can say that the difference with the 12-13 (as well as the 13-14) models is that the wolf has been completely unleashed. The reason can be found in the proper and well measured incorporation of the rocker technology. That shovel can literally eat whatever it may found. It doesn’t care if the snow is hard, soft, deep or melt. The wolf is always hungry.
