The newest addition to the Laser family, the AR struck testers as a frontside carver that could handle bumps and crud, but definitely preferred groomed terrain. Stöckli’s Torsion Racing Technology, or TRT, is longitudinal notches in the tip and tail of the Titanal layers and an adaptive contact length that allows the ski to ease in and out of turns. Don’t be fooled, though, this ski demands good technique.
