Some carving skis demand strong quads and flawless technique. The Speedmachine only demands that you have as much fun as it does. It succeeds with a combination of quickness and ease that’s uncommon in this category. No other ski came close in the Playfulness criteria, where many an overbuilt carver comes to grief. There’s metal in the GT’s layup, but cutaway sections fore and aft reduce weight and soften flex. The result: Serious fun. Megroz: “Sick ski. Tons of pop and playfulness.”

Strengths: Stability at Speed, Quickness/Maneuverability, Versatility
