Notice that the Raider resembles the eminently successful Apache Recon (AME Speed) without the metal and with a less powerful binding. That shape in a softer, less demanding layup makes for a fun ride that's anything but gutless. It's the widest ski in the category, so it's extra stable and a good choice for honing powder skills. But it's no pussycat. In fact, experts might find it to be a great value. "Ready to take an intermediate to the next level," said Schoff.
