The Gotama comes redesigned for 2009–10 with gentle tip and tail rocker. It also has three distinct flex zones: a stiff tip (rockered, so it’s easy to initiate), harder flex in the center (to make it carve), and a medium-to-soft tail (to exit turns on command). The result is a ski that floats, straightlines, and worms through impossibly tight terrain with ease. Plus: Carve or slide. It’s your call. Minus: Tail felt unsteady for some testers.
