Double rocker (nearly complete reverse camber), with soft tips, and Titanal underfoot—this is a powder ski, right? Wrong. Expert testers loved the Daemon everywhere thanks to quick response, a huge sweet spot, and surprising edge hold. “They do what you tell them the moment you ask,” said one tester. “Pivoted through tough terrain easily,” added another. “These love powder, but destroy crud and carve remarkably well,” said a third.
