Details: The PSX TC is informally known around Elan as the Tom Cat. It’s an appropriate nickname since the ski is feisty, a touch unpredictable and pleasingly tough. “This is a good jock ski,” said McGrath. “If you put in some effort, it will make you better than you were.” McMenamy pointed out one of the ski’s specific demands and one of its rewards: “You have to keep your nose forward at all times, and relax only when cruising. If you do that, the PSX is fun, explosive and smooth.”

Positives: Tenacious on hard snow
Negatives: It demands attention
