Crud performance: 3.06 / 5
Forgiveness: 3.51 / 5

Here’s a category-defining blend of performance and forgiveness. The performance is up front—a broad tip that hooks up at the barest hint of edge angle. The forgiveness is the tail, which skids off speed readily, not insisting you finish every turn like a slalom ace. And that 80-mm platform, so easy to balance on, is just plain comfortable—not to mention ready for powder days. It’s quick, it’s snappy, and it never talks back. “Supports you through the whole turn into the next,” said Sabanosh.
