Above all, testers loved the spring-loaded rebound of the Laser, a ski that jets out of one turn like it can’t wait to get to the next. Slalom turns, they said, are its forte (especially in our 175-cm test length), and the No. 1 ski in Rebound Energy has no trouble getting quickly across the fall line and onto the next edge. But it can be coaxed into longer turns as well, and while it also put up high scores in Hard-Snow Integrity (No. 1) and Stability at Speed (No. 2), it’s just wide enough, and just soft enough tip and tail, to be fun and—even with all that rebound—manageable. Dodge: “Fun, fast, and twitchy.”
