Some skis in this category are so intent on your improvement, you feel like a waterskier being yanked behind a speedboat. The True Luv, though, is more like floating on an inner tube in the pool: It won’t force you into anything you’re not ready for. It’s soothing, patient, relaxed and gentle (No. 1 in forgiveness). But a torsion-box/cap
construction, rigid enough to allow a softer ski to hold an edge, makes it sturdy, too. “The skier is in the driver’s seat at all times,” MacConnell said.
