Product Review: Wed’ze One Breaker Skis
Brand new this season, we have the revamped classic that are the One Breaker Skis designed by Wed’ze in the heart of the Alps in the Mt Blanc valley. If the destination in which they were designed and the classic aspects of the design are anything to go by, we’re sure that they will be a top notch ski at an unbelievable price. Last month I had the opportunity to test this unique pair of Skis during a day session, and within this blog, will detail my likes and dislikes alongside the technicalities that this ski has to offer.
What do the One Breaker Ski’s Offer?
The One Breaker Skis are designed for the experienced intermediate pure Piste skier who is looking for easy to handle, precise Ski’s that they can enjoy whilst on the slopes. The One Breaker is a soft ski with good traction allowing the user to turn easily at moderate speeds with a large amount of control and precision. Incorporating a composite CAP sandwich construction the One Breaker is very lightweight meaning that the fatigue of the skier is decreased throughout the day due to easier more comfortable turns. With its full camber it provides a high amount of stability and traction making the skiing experience very enjoyable throughout the day. The pin tail side cut that the One Breaker incorporates also allows intuitive turns and easy side slips for the intermediate skier allowing them to handle every situation with ease. In one sentence the One Breaker is a ski designed to be easy to ski anywhere on groomed slopes incorporating and easy to turn design alongside an unbeatable price to quality ratio.
How did they perform?
During a full day of skiing, I had the chance to thoroughly test these Skis and find out just how well they perform for the user type they are designed for. The first thing I noticed about these Skis is their easy manoeuvrability. Whilst skiing at moderate speeds, these Skis were a delight to ski with and not at any point did I have to put in any effort to make them turn where I wanted them too. Their stable construction increases your confidence and allows you to really play around and have some fun performing both basic tight and long sweeping turns with ease and control. When pushing the ski to its upper speed limits and performing super tight turns, I found that they had the tendency to chatter at their tips which created vibrations which are both annoying and uncomfortable to turn with, but for the level they are designed for, I didn’t expect this to be a high performance turn on a penny type of ski so I wouldn’t necessarily call this a negative point, as that type of skiing is the total opposite of what this ski is designed for. Overall for groomed Piste skiing of the intermediate level this ski really performs excellently and for its small price really gives you an incredible value for money. If you are looking for a fun intermediate well priced ski this season, be sure to give the One Breaker a try, I’m sure you will not be disappointed.
