With a solid, stable platform, the Joyrider again ranks among the category’s most forgiving. It makes long, smooth arcs on the frontside and absolves most balance mistakes. Built from a women-specific mold, it’s forward-waisted, not just forward-mounted. That gives it a sweet spot you can’t miss. A ski this easy tends to be a little imprecise, and it also favors a single turn shape. But, said Lewis, “if it’s the type of turn you like, you’ll be happy.”
