Salomon continues to ramp up its line with more wood-core skis that offer tons of edge hold and high-speed stability—without losing their classic playfulness and loose feel. True to form, the Cyclone is damp and smooth but lightning-fast edge to edge.

Responds well to power or finesse.

Gripes

Superheavyweights can overpower it.
