One tester swore he could "spend all winter on it." The Red Heat is a metal-free cap construction, so it's not surprising that testers found it light and playful. It'll slide around and take in the views all day, if that's your goal. But tip it on edge on hard snow, and it knows what to do. As you gain skill and confidence, the Red Heat rewards you with thrilling performance. "You can rail it-but then back off and feather the edge at any speed," said Sabanosh.
Nice mix of forgiveness and performance
