The Carbon Course is definitely the best slalom ski that Connelly has ever designed. The angle generated out the turn, combined with great acceleration, will make it a winner with short-line skiers. Connelly designed the Carbon Course using carbon graphite technology with just the right amount of fiberglass, which makes for a ski that is very durable and responsive. Some of the testers had a feeling of the ski searching in the glide for the gates, but once you get the ski on edge, it's fine. The testers loved the user-friendly features of the Carbon Course as well as its acceleration abilities out of the turn.
