Testers medaled the VI in the Cruiser category last year, which means it’s capable of expert arcing. (Carbon reinforcements underfoot transfer power instantly from boot to edge.) The question, then, is can so much power be easy? Testers found the generous tip a cinch to initiate, and the gentle flex friendly until you’re ready for the edges to bite. But it is high energy (No. 1 in rebound), so better skiers will get the most out of it. “Good combo of stable reassurance and enthusiasm,” Thys said.
