It's technically a cap construction, but the Outlaw's sidewalls are close enough to vertical that it's a fine distinction. And testers weren't complaining about lack of power. In fact, the Outlaw-which is 4 mm wider than last year's-was among the most stable and muscular skis in the category, thanks to two sheets of metal and a wood core. "Will rail a turn on hardpack or rip Wilbere Bowl on a deep day," said Preston. "Super stable in either situation."
