Compare the Whiteout to the Black Eye (AME Free). Same shape; lighter, softer construction. Yet it still gets high marks for Stability at Speed. Testers noticed little decrease in power (or increase in forgiveness), so don’t worry about being undergunned for high speeds and hard snow. It loves high edge angles and never fails to come around. “A race-stable platform without race-ski punishment,” said Morgan.

Best For

Long-turn speed lovers who want soft-snow versatility

Not For

Rapid-fire slalom arcs.
