Built like custom race skis but with an even flex and powder-floatable girth, the XXLs scream downhill and bash through crud. Our testers transitioned from corduroy to shin-deep pow without changing their stance or adjusting speed.

Props

They hug the snow surface, track flawlessly, and leave trenches in their wake.

Gripes

You need to muscle them into short turns at lower speeds.

Tester's Take

"A perfectly balanced ski. It will make any turn shape at any speed." —David Currier
