Most AE medalists gently hold your hand, easing you into a carve. This one drags you in by the collar. Testers lauded it as the highest-performing ski in the category but punished it for being the least forgiving. The Sol dives down the fall line with quick transitions that keep you moving. Testers found skidding it to be impossible, so users need to be able to set a strong edge. "If you trust yourself, you will be handsomely rewarded," said Wilde.
