Apache Recon (2009)

Apache Recon (2009)

Testers haven't tired of the venerable Recon-the prototypical hard-snow/soft-snow do-everything ski. It's been a champ of the AME Freeride category for years, but here it is in AME Speed. That's a testament to its versatility-and an indication of how grippy today's wider waists can be, especially when reinforced with metal and paired with a wide-body binding like the Marker MX. "Soft, smooth and silky, but the response is still excellent," said McGrath.
