One of the favorites in the category, the Lotta Luv earned top honors in Long Turns, Short Turns, Forgiveness and Overall Impression—a testament to its versatility and broad appeal. With a metal-laminate construction designed to reduce vibration, it’s smooth and comfortable on all terrain. Its shapely sidecut snaps to attention yet delivers a relaxing ride. And, making no concessions in weight or power from the men’s Recon, it’s guaranteed not to condescend. As Chappel put it, “Yee-haw. These are kick-ass skis.”
Confronting your issues—it’s too forgiving.
