It’s ticking with whiz-bang tech, like Vapor Tip inserts and Tubelight wood core, but all you need to know is that the Ripstick 102 is a lively shredder. This ski can weave through the trees, carve perfect arcs on groomers, and float above the crud. A few testers dinged the shorter length for Stability at Speed, but those who skied the longer length had no quibbles. 

Strength: Quickness, Balance of Skills 

Weakness: Stability at Speed
