We hardly needed to test the Recon—longtime darling of the test and two-time Ski of the Year. Good thing we did anyway. As with the Apache Xplorer (see Freeride), last year’s addition of the Marker Inter-Pivot heel lends
a hard-snow integrity that earlier Recons didn’t have. Top scores in flotation and forgiveness come as no
surprise. But No. 1 in stability at speed? Like we said:
not your daddy’s Recon. “Does everything: long/stable, short/quick or medium/smooth,” said Rogan.
