Waist Width: 82
The 82-waisted Beyond is designed to carve with authority on hard snow, but should still offer a measure of float in softer snow-perfect for soft groomers or spring mush, where it won't trench too deeply. Slight tip rocker should smooth the ride and make the ski easy to pivot and skid. The sidecut will prefer mid- to long-radius arcs. Construction: wood core with all-carbon-fiber torsion box. Goode made a radical change in its layups for 2012, going with wood cores, instead of foam, in all of its cores. Testers were greatly impressed by the difference in performance, enjoying the extra heft of wood core Goodes, which have improved tracking and stability but retain the quickness of carbon-construction.
