Nicknamed “The Green Hornet” for ’18-’19, the Redster X9 remains unchanged besides its new jade topsheet color. It still features seven-time World Cup Overall Champion Marcel Hirscher’s Servotec technology, it still has a bomb-proof Titanal-wood-Titanal construction, and it still has one purpose: To arc and destroy every inch of corduroy at your local ski hill. The faster you ski it, the smoother it becomes. Yellow-jacket speed patrol beware: You can’t keep up with this ski. 

Strengths: Stability at Speed, Hard-Snow Integrity 

Weakness: Forgiveness
