Reviewer Heyman

"One-Ski Quiver: the ultimate ski that carves like a slalom ski, accellerates like a GS ski, is as comfortable as an all-mountain ski, cuts through chop like a freeride ski and surfs in bottomless powder like a fat powder ski. Impossible. But which ski comes closest?"

Versatility through flexibility


The Scott Adventure really comes into its own in chopped up snow. On the groomers it carves nicely but not great. Because of the relatively flexible profile, the stability is not optimal. And that means you cannot ski at mach 2, even if the slopes allow you to. But that same flexibilty brings comfort and the certainty that it will perform when snow circumstances get worse. This is a ski you want to take with you when on an adventure where you don't know what to expect. The skis can handle anything, but do not excel in anything either. The Venturi tip and tail work fine in tracked and deep snow, adding stability and composure. Getting the skis on rails as it were. But on piste performance is medium.

Who is this ski for?

This ski is for intermediate and advanced skiers who want comfort and the reassurance that they can take this ski anywhere on the mountain in all circumstances. As we all know, that means compromising. My personal opinion is that Scott has traded off just a bit too much agressiveness and precision in order to increase comfort and adaptability. Therefore I give the Adventure a 3 star rating.

Scott about the Adventure

"New for 2014-15, the Adventure is the next evolution of the popular Venture. The full-length wood core delivers power and agility, while Venturi technology provides optimal float without compromising stability", says Scott.

Liberty Variant 97: speed loving all-mountain ski, stiffer and more stable than the Adventure.
