  • Based on the geometry of the multiple award winning Second Opinion 118, but with a waist of 108 mm and a little shorter radius. This width in the Opinion series is made for the skier who wants a versatile and playful freeride ski to use every day over the mountain, regardless of snow conditions. The construction and rocker profile of the Opinion range is optimized for soft snow but can also be skied with plenty of pressure on the slopes.

    Second Opinion 108 is a very light glass fibre ski (1860 g at 186 cm), made out of snappy poplar wood and light paulownia wood. The harmonious tapered tip and tail, combined with the long low-rise rocker profile, creates fantastic floatation in powder and makes them easy to manoeuvre in all conditions.

    Second Opinion 108 is your choice if you are looking for a playful and versatile freeride ski for all snow conditions, while Second Opinion 118 is an alternative if your focus is the deepest powder days. If you are looking for a more powerful freeride model with a lot of performance, Fusion 105 Reload would be a good choice.

  • Big-mountain Test Winner 2017/18 in the Swedish ski magazine Åka Skidor with rewards like “One of the better skis for drifting and it holds as good in higher speeds.”

    Opinion 118 is also the world’s first community-developed ski, created with the help of hundreds of dedicated skiers in forum thread with 1.900 member posts, over 1.000.000 visits and one year of development. For this, the model was awarded the international and prestigious ISPO Gold Award 2014/15.

    The model was renamed to Second Opinion after a further development of the construction that made the ski 15 % lighter ski and gave it more playful characteristics. The ski is very all-round for being such a wide ski, but prefers powder, tracked powder or spring snow. A ski for your Japan trip or for the best days of the winter.

    Second Opinion 118 is an ultra-light glass fibre ski (1990 g at 187 cm), made out of snappy poplar wood and light paulownia wood. In the tip and tail we use the ultra-light aerospace material Tubecomb for lowest possible swing weight. The harmonious tapered tip and tail, combined with the long low-rise rocker profile, creates fantastic floatation in powder and makes them easy to manoeuvre in all conditions.

    Second Opinion 118 is perfect if you are looking for a wide freeride ski or a powder ski. If you want more all-round freeride characteristics, Second Opinion 108 could be an option.
