With two struts of metal aligned vertically in the wood core, plus a carbon laminate and race-grade sidewalls, the Evolv90 has a lot of bite with minimal chatter. Testers enjoyed railing large-radius arcs at high speed and appreciated the ski’s confident ability to quietly shut down speed. A few testers struggled to find the sweet spot between full gas and full brakes, but those who did believe this damp ski can go toe-to-toe with the big European brands.

STRENGTHS: Stability at Speed, Hard-Snow Integrity

WEAKNESSES: Forgiveness, Versatility
