The Tierra incorporates Völkl’s new knee-safety technology: A flat stance makes for a safer angle, and a narrower tail makes for less tugging at the end of the turn. What our testers noticed, however, was even more damp Völkl power and edge-bite; a straighter leg can really step on the gas. A few griped that the new version wasn’t as comfortable, especially in bumps, but most of our aggressive women agreed with Livran: “Slick, sharp—a wild good time.”

Not for Bumps. The Tierra isn’t the quickest stick.
