East Coasters, step right up. This narrower-waisted all-mountain ski was made to give you the stability and edge grip you crave for your hardpack, but thanks to its all-mountain rocker profile, it will also tackle crud with a steady hand. A poplar wood core makes it feel light underfoot, though testers wished it also gave the ski more energy. Instead, Atomic’s Titanium Tank Mesh in the construction adds a torsional stiffness that saps some of the ski’s pizzazz. Alas, the price you pay for stability and predictability.

STRENGTHS: Hard-Snow Integrity, Stability at Speed

WEAKNESSES: Flotation, Playfulness
