A great park ski. The S4 has great pop, and generates speed easily in the pipe, maybe in part thanks to its carbon/kevlar reinforced tail. Underfoot the sidewalls and edges are reinforced for durability on the rails and any other obstacle you happen to be nailing your skis against. The ski is stiff enough to perform at speeds elsewhere on the mountain without it feeling like it is about to wash out, but at the same time they are not so stiff as to render any buttering and jibbing impossible. Difficult to fault really, a great ski, although it comes at a hefty price.
