A snappy carver, the Contact Limited has a shapely tip that initiates smoothly. The edge hold stays strong in the turn belly. And the tail is predictable and powerful.
The ski’s progressively stiffer flex torpedoes you into your next turn.
Larger testers found it skittish at high speed.
"Like an MG roadster with the top down: plenty of fun at speed." —Peter Nestor
