Especially if your quiver already includes a midfat for soft-snow days, the Curv makes perfect sense. It’s a finely tuned carving specialist, incredibly good for dicing groomed runs at high speeds, not at all interested in venturing off-piste. Speed brings out its best. Testers called it one of the racier models in the category. And its Hard Snow score was easily the highest. Forgiving? Nope. First to the bottom? Every darn time. “An arc machine” said Larsen. “Tons of rebound energy.”

Strengths: Hard-Snow Integrity, Stability at Speed, Versatility
