Testers had lots of praise for the carbon-enhanced, bamboo-cored Origin 96, which rewarded aggressive drivers most: “The harder you push the better; requires some effort in short radius turns,” said one tester. Another called the rocker profile “spot on,” with enough tip rise to float but enough camber to rip firm snow. “The ample early rise in the tip engaged and disengaged at will.” A downside? “Not the most playful or dampest ski.”

STRENGTHS: Stability at Speed, Hard Snow, Quickness
