Majesty Havoc Carbon
What we think:
Don't let yourself get fooled by the Havoc's stiff flex pattern. Under the attractive (and durable) graphic is a masterpiece of a powder-specific touring ski. Forget the tank, what you're looking at is a nimble, responsive and confident ski everywhere.
Up front, you'll find a precise and damp shovel with just enough stiffness to effortlessly get you through variable snow. Underfoot, the Havoc is there for you no matter how hard you push. As any good directional freeride ski, it will reward good technique, but don't expect a ski that asks for brute force. Out back, nice and stable tails that will let you rail high-angle turns await, but somehow the Havoc has an easy (should we say effortless...!) pivot that will have you search for tight spots and last-minute direction changes.
And on the skin track, yes the Havoc isn't a weight-weenie, but its lower swing weight is bluffing. Majesty, that's a damn fine ski you've crafted here. Mount with a lightweight binding, and go get pitted.
What Majesty Says
Majesty calls their ski technology the 4 x 4 Design Concept, and skiing the Havoc it quickly becomes apparent why such a name. With its carbon and aramid fiber construction, its light paulownia/poplar hybrid core and its 4-radii sidecut, this freeride backcountry ski really feels like an all-terrain vehicle!
