Twist the Power Switch on the Tigershark’s tail and two carbon-fiber rods in the ski load with tension, giving it extra zing as it arcs through a turn. It sounds like a gimmick but it works. The ski is mellower and more playful in the off position and souped up when on.

Props

Incredible edge hold.

Gripes

Unless you’re a yogi, you have to take the skis off to flick the switches.
