In a category full of race-ready bruisers, the personable Tornado was among the least demanding and most versatile rides. Metal reinforced cap construction and a tight radius give it a liveliness that others in the category lack. No, it won't be ideal for making those icy days fun, but for an AME Speed ski, it was unusually entertaining in soft snow and crud. "Athletic skiers will enjoy the energy," said Schoff. "It's light, playful, balanced."
