Rossi updates its women’s Temptation line with HD this year—a Carbon Alloy Matrix layer of carbon (for energy) and basalt (for dampness) fibers. The result is a ski that’s lighter, stronger, and crisper in feel to its popular predecessor. Testers noted it felt more like a carver than an all-mountain crusher; it loves to cleave up the groomed in any radius turns you feel like making. It’s capable everywhere except in crud, where its lighter weight just didn’t cut it. “It initiates the turn with ease,” Barnes said, “then blasts through the finish.” 

Strengths: Playfulness, Hard-Snow Integrity
