This brand-new ski—wide-waisted and deeply sidecut—stays afloat in powder and blasts rough crud. Hit the groomer in between off-piste laps, though, and you’ll think you’re on a carving thoroughbred. gripes: Could be more stout. On firmer snow, too much skier energy dissipates before reaching the edges. props: Like the Teneighty Gun, it’s an all-day ski: lightweight and easy to wield. tester’s take: "Unreal fun and a great surprise." —Matt Ross
