Testers wanted more than the 170-cm test length and complained that the Top Fuel was too narrow. Then they gave it some of the highest marks in the category. In a word, it's nimble. Lively. Zingy, even. Yet it never throws you off balance-apparently because its XBi binding interface works, correcting minor fore-aft balance mistakes by redistributing pressure as needed. "Holy arc-machine," said Hochman. "It just launches you into the next turn."
