The Vector Evo combines a silky interior feel with a silky on-snow demeanor. It's a well- balanced comfort and performance package that will work for a broad range of medium- width feet. Flex is adjustable, and testers encourage good skiers to bump it to the firmer notch. It carves long sweeping arcs and is adept off-piste, but quick turns on firm snow don't come with slalom alacrity. Johnson: "Strong holding power on steeps with smooth transitions and a supple feel for the snow."
