Advanced level all-mountain skier DellaSausa's rating of this ski:
Considering his skiers profile:
en-US - * - 3016
"I ski at high speed, so stability is vital. As is powder output for I dart off-piste all the time. Versatility is all important for an all-mountain ski, with an emphasis on powder (backside) for me. But I still like them to be stiff, not flexible."
The Scott Crusade is an insane all-mountain ski! This ski is really cool. It has very cool looks! And during skiing you’ve got a very nice snowspray on the back! It looks like a jetski waterstream. The Crusade has a narrow waist for grip on groomed slopes while the broader front and back gives you more float in all snow conditions. This ski is flexible with good dampening in the fresh powder snow. It turns very easy off-piste. Off piste this ski is playful and gives a lot of fun.
Grip in every turn
For me it was fun to speed up off-piste, the Crusade gives you confidence. On piste this all-mountain ski is also fun and pretty good! It’s easy to get this ski on the edges for short, midlong and long carve turns. The switch on the edges is super smooth and with good grip all the way through your turn. This ski is challenging and will push you to your own limit. And that’s what I like in a ski. 5 stars for the Scott Crusade.
Scott about the Crusade
"“THE ONE QUIVER SKI” The Crusade is just as comfortable on groomers as it is in the trees. It floats in powder, carves on ice, and performs flawlessly on everything in between.", says Scott. I absolutely fully agree! Brilliant ski!
