On the heels of the revolutionary Salomon Pilot, more new ski systems have hit the market. The idea: design ski and binding together as one harmonious unit. The best from Skiing's test this spring: the Völkl Carver Motion ($895), a precision instrument for experts; the Salomon Crossmax 8 Pilot ($875), for advanced all-terrain carvers; and the Atomic Beta Carve 9.18 Device ($795), a big-turning machine for athletic intermediates.
