Liberty made its debut in the SKI Test in 2019 and proved to testers it belonged. It may not be tops in every category, but man is the Genesis 96 fun. Playing to its strengths, Liberty designed the Genesis 96 to be a poppy, playful, and forgiving ski that butters the whole mountain. A lightweight, composite wood core reinforced with carbon stringers and early-rise rocker make the Genesis 96 a confidence-booster.

STRENGTHS: Quickness, Playfulness

WEAKNESS: Versatility
