The Radar Senate AC is not a super lightweight, elite slalom ski, nor is it a bland, vanilla recreational slalom. It is a 35-off-capable, easy-to-ride, yet serious slalom ski for someone who is just starting to work their way down the rope without the cost and frills of a high-end shortline ski.
The Senate AC is a wider version of the Radar MPD with minor tweaks to the flex, rocker and core material. Compared to the MPD, it does not turn as fast or generate as much speed and width. Instead, it delivers unparalleled stability, smoothness and forgiveness. This ski bridges the gap between the typical recreational ski and the super high-end skis.
Ridden aggressively by an experienced shortline skier, the Senate AC delivers near-elite slalom capabilities; ridden by a less-skilled skier, the Senate AC pardons any number of bad habits. This ski is not a cure for bad technique, but it will ease the pain.

“The Senate is perfect for the up-and-coming skier who is beginning to put it together, but isn't yet ready to take advantage of a full-blown high-performance stick.” — Ed Obermeier
“The Senate AC has a wider tail section that helped me when I got out of position. I felt like it had a wide platform to stand on and a large margin of error. It has a lot of the same characteristics of the MPD, but you can get away with more mistakes.” — Keith Albritton
“The Senate has nice acceleration, stable wake crossing and holds very well in the turn. This ski will allow those without perfect body position to get into shorter line lengths.” — Brad Wolfe
