The Koa 75 replaces last year’s medal-winning Vision Exhale and steps up the performance with a full sidewall. It’s better at blasting through crud and powder, but still very much on the light and lively side of the spectrum. Quick and soft—almost toy-like—it’s a ski an intermediate could have fun on without upping her game. It does shimmy at high speeds—a flaw that might be alleviated by a longer length (testers skied a 155). “Nimble, but uncomfortable picking up speed,” Forland said.
