Like the Olympia Speed (see Frontside Expert reviews, page 97), the Victory employs the unique X-Balance binding system, two under-boot cantilevers to help distribute your weight evenly from tip to tail. The result is superb edge hold and a forgiving nature. Fat tips engage quickly, turns hold strong. gripes: Testers wanted a bit more girth for float. props: Snappy tails for end-of-turn pop. tester’s take: "Like a yogi: firm and strong for the hard stuff yet flexible for all kinds of maneuvers." —Karen Nestor
