This Speedmachine is similar to the Mach 3. It features the same binding system and sidecut. But metal-free torsion-box construction (wood core wrapped with fiberglass) makes it less demanding. If anything, testers preferred it to the Mach 3. It’s a natural for cruising the groomers at high speed, where it inspires confidence to commit to high edge angles. Hogen called it "a fall-line cruiser that isn’t afraid to step on the gas."

Best For

Outrunning ski patrol.

Not For

Lazy cruising. It wants direction.
