Powerful testers appreciated the edge security and feedback offered by these carving utensils. With a predictable hookup and energetic finish, the Crimsons hold strongly through the turn. They’re nimble and quick in trees and bumps. Despite powerful edge bite, they’ll disengage with a roll of the ankle. PLUS: Lots of tail zing for post-turn acceleration. MINUS: Lighter skiers and a few jibby types found it too demanding.
