With a 125-millimeter waist (at 190 centimeters) the Sumo is as massive as its namesake. But it doesn’t ski big. A pure floater, it transitions from turn to turn effortlessly and skims the surface—until you punch it in the belly and set it on edge. gripes: Some testers felt that the tail was hard to release. props: Hands down, the most versatile ski in the bunch—surprisingly fun and aggressive on hard snow, too. tester’s take: "An awesome choice for anyone who loves powder and gets it frequently." —Chris Davenport
