In a ski where the true merits of the low to mid 80mm waist width skis are it seems finally being remembered, the Slight 83 is an absolute jewel amongst jewels.
Some fifteen years ago Scott revolutionized the world of All Mountain Skis with the introduction of the Aztec/Aztec Pro and the Mission, now at last there seems to be recognition that Herve’s legacy, with some additional input from co-designer Daniel in Scott’s Slight range of skis has brought Scott to the fore in this fabulously versatile ski.
Light enough to Tour, powerful enough to accurately carve at over 70mph, we found them awesome. For greater float and for those looking to spend more time off piste go up to the 93 or 100mm underfoot Slights, especially if you are of a heavier build, otherwise stick with the 83 because, somehow, they seem to generate far more float than they should.
The newest generation of crossover skis. The SCOTT Slight 83 is built to attack the front side of the mountain. It features the same light-weight construction as the Slight 93 and Slight 100, in a more agile 83mm waist-width. The shorter Pro-Tip Rocker length of 250mm provides increased precision on the groomer while the SCOTT’s revolutionary 3Dimension Sidecut offers forgiveness and confidence in all terrain and snow conditions. The Slight 83 delivers the highest level of frontside performance in a lightweight package.
