Exclusive Legend Eden (2010)

People's Ski Test 2010, Dynastar

Women testers gravitated toward the Exclusive Legend, and enduring favorite of the Dynastar women’s collection.

Among skis that got enough test runs for a valid result, here are the rankings:

Black Magic (2010)

People's Ski Test 2010, Elan

Elan was busy, sending out lots of test skis over the weekend. We apparently had some racers among our testers, and they B-lined for the Elan tent and cranked out a healthy number of test cards on the SLX and GLX race skis (mostly quite favorable, though we won’t deal with race skis here). Meanwhile, the Speedwave 14 and the 888 were the most-tested—apparently folks weren’t deterred by the 88 waist on the latter. Among skis that got enough test runs for a valid result, here are the rankings:

iSupershape Magnum (2010)

People's Ski Test 2010, Head

No surprise—the Supershape, an unabashed carver, was Head’s most-requested model. New Englanders still like to set an edge, and aren’t embarrassed to admit it. The Peak 76, a little wider and a little less demanding, also garnered interest—and enough test runs to earn a rating.
