While these skis might look like they’re made entirely out of metal and need to be skied by guys who can squat 800lbs, they knocked the socks off the test crew. Testers found them to be surprisingly nimble all over the mountain, and not just for Stöckli’s usual frontside domination. Made with the brand’s signature freeride construction of Titanal sandwiching a not-so-traditional lightweight wood core, the Stormrider 88 has dynamic prowess everywhere it goes. 

Strength: Hard-Snow Integrity

Weakness: Playfulness
