Dampness—the absence of vibration—can be a matter of taste. But testers were unanimous in their high opinion of the smoothness and imperturbability of the Phantom, which flows down the hill like mercury. It’s easy to get going faster than you normally do—the calm ride does it every time. But it handles all that speed nicely, and its forgiving tail won’t ever surprise you by over-finishing a turn. “Nice creamy feel that serves well in all conditions,” said Preston.
