Though this is the fattest ski in the category, testers were surprised by the Afterburner's superior edge hold on hardpack. Off-piste, its massive shovel blasts through chunder.

Props

The wider platform translates to greater stability and a big sweet spot.

Gripes

The stiff flex makes it less forgiving than others.
