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?"

Fantastic all-mountain/freeride ski

The Stöckli Stormrider Motion is an all-mountain/freeride women's ski. I (male, 178 cm, 85 kg) skied the 175 cm version and I give this ski a fully deserved 5 star rating. And I mean a 5 star rating for men. Why? Because on groomed terrain you only have to shift your weight a little and the Stormrider Motion immediately starts a beautiful carve turn. Because in soft and hard frozen chopped-up snow this ski behaves like it's on groomers. Because the small radius and the huge amount of edge grip make for a very tight carve turn, that produces more g-forces than you can handle. Because however flat you go through a turn, this ski will never drift 1 millimeter off line. Because the Stöckli Stormrider Motion is a great ski!

Cruise along and thunder down

And because slow turns are easy and high speed turns are intense. Because it floats reasonably well in powder and has the carving qualities of a very good piste ski. Because turn initiation is effortless and max speed is handled without tip flap. Because this ski is at the same time extremely playful and serious. And because, like me, many intermediate+ and advanced male skiers will certainly and highly enjoy the Stormrider Motion.

Stöckli about the Stormrider Motion

"This ladies' ski is a real multitalent: With substantial lift it not only ensures fun in powder, but is just as impressive on the piste with its typical Stöckli handling attributes", according to Stöckli. I agree, because Stöckli has managed to create a ski with more flex while maintaining Stöckli's world famous on piste camber precision.
