Hate clichés all you want, but Stöckli is known for Swiss-built precision, and that’s what you get in the Laser SX. It’s not built for comfort or ease, testers warned. Versatility? Nein. But the SX is certainly among the strongest and edgiest skis in the category. Testers loved what it does at high speeds in medium and long arcs, laying trenches and thumbing its nose at the speed cops. If that’s what makes groomer days fun for you, it won’t disappoint. Casey: “Scores won’t reflect what a blast it is to ski.”

Strengths: Hard-Snow Integrity, Stability at Speed, Playfulness,
