As one tester noted, this ski has a “supple, lively touch that will be lost on thumpers, but skilled tacticians with touch will love it.” He’s right: The bigger guys found them easy to overpower, while medium-to-smaller testers didn’t want to take them off. With a freeride-oriented turn radius, a five-point sidecut, and a poplar wood core complemented by the brand’s Powerdrive technology, these are for expert skiers with finesse. 

Strength: Playfulness 

Weakness: Stability at Speed
