A lighter and livelier version of Mach 3 Power (below), this Speedmachine excels at knocking off medium-radius turns in soft snow and corduroy.

Props

As stable and well balanced as…a Nordica ski.

Gripes

They were a touch chattery on the early-morning hardpack at Deer Valley. If you ski a lot of ice, think about upgrading to the Power.

Tester's Take
