The name says it all: This ski floats, but in a high-speed, hold-on-to-your-jock kind of way. One of the least surfy skis tested—it needs to be actively decambered to turn. Penetrates the snowpack when you tip it on edge. gripes: Tough to release the tail and slide. props: It’s no thug when it comes to the sweet spot. A stable, forgiving ride—despite its bad-boy nature. tester’s take: "The Thug is a straight-running marvel." —Will Burks
