Reviewer Steef

"For freeride skis counts for me: stability at speed over comfort and maneuverability. Of course freeride skis need to provide enough floatation for bottomless powder snow. Versatility in the sense of quality on other snow conditions is a bonus. And I rather put more than less energy in skiing, also in the backcountry."

Beautiful powder ski


The Stöckli Stormrider 107 is an absolute topclass powderski for experts. I have tested it at 183 cm in length and for this given length and width it is not very heavy weight. Besides that the Stormrider 107 is stylish and looks awesome. The ski is mentioned as what it looks like: powder is it's habitat and nothing else. For this use it will give you almost maximum performance. The Stormrider 107 is not the easiest ski and I had to compensate skills with energy and effort. That means that for more experienced riders this might be a very good choice. Just in case you want a ski for ripping through deep powder all day, amazing!

Stormrider 107 makes off-piste skiing easier

These Stormrider 107 skis maneuver surprisingly easy the moment you dive in the deep pow. No need to adjust your posture, they just keep floating. And although I had some work to do, I could still feel the nature of the ski that must be able to turn without effort. Also in disordered terrain they perform very well, cutting thru and run over snowbumps as a sharp knife. A 4+ star rating for all off-piste performance, again without good skills you must put effort in. On piste, the usage is limited, exept on groomers with a lot of space, then the Stöckli Stormrider 107 feels like giant slalom skis, rocksolid with loads of grip and getting a lot of speed with maximum control. Just the rebound is less and it takes effort to switch from side to side (logical). On crowded bumpy slopes, you'll need to work to handle this stiff ski to keep everyone safe. So for on piste usage a 3 star rating. As it is a freeride ski, I'll give the Stormrider 107 an overall 4 star rating. The only minus for me personally is the lack of allround usage.

Stöckli about the Stormrider 107

"The Stormrider 107 loves powder. And because it is less wide compared to the Stormrider Pro 115 it also has a more broad application range. New TRI technology consists of a centered carbon insert which neutralizes ski torsion but makes it stiffer at the deflection curve. The result: precise control during fast downhills and simple drifts.", according to Stöckli. Eh, yes. and the broader apllication range could be, but to me it is still mentioned as a powder ski only.
