What do you get when you pair a race-inspired sidecut with a double layer of Titanal? A ski designed to shred at speed. Testers unanimously agreed that Salomon’s new frontside tool for ladies offers plenty of stability while charging down groomers. Some felt the Titanal made the ski a tad damp and burly, others found the ski’s caruba/poplar core made the ski light and forgiving enough for novices. Final verdict: Get to know her on the groomers and she’ll show you what she’s made of.

STRENGTHS: Stability at Speed, Hard-Snow Integrity

WEAKNESSES: Quickness, Playfulness
