Like a Toyota Camry, the Spire is reliable and built for everyday use. Testers called it more lively and versatile than Karhu’s Storm (page 58), but don’t expect explosion out of the turns—it transitions easily but without much pop. Easterners will appreciate its edge hold on steeps and ice. Plus: A soft tip makes it a great telemark ski. Minus: It doesn’t off-road like a Tundra. Keep it on the pavement.
