A tight turn radius means this ski shines in short turns, and liberal rocker at the tip made even the 178 feel manageable. A unique sidewall construction layers shearing material vertically behind the ABS, which makes the flex smoother and more progressive. (Think of bending this magazine: The binding will buckle, but this layer makes the ski flex like the unbound pages.) It’s lightweight, but still some testers found the tip unwieldy and the tail too stiff.
