To achieve today’s high strength-to-weight ratios, some brands strip weight from the center, others from the edges. Völkl’s techy 3D Ridge belongs to the latter tribe, with mass in the middle and sensitivity on the perimeter, making its rocker-camber-rocker profile easy to tip, grip, and rip. Testers loved the damp stability and predictability of the 90EIGHT W, but some felt it lacked playfulness and pop. Built for speed and disapproving of skidders, it’s best driven by the expert set. 

Strength: Hard-Snow Integrity, Stability at Speed 

Weakness: Playfulness
