A super-aggressive beast that plows through anything, the all-new Dakota is not for casual riders. It is, after all, named after a famous rodeo bull. With a 27-m turn radius, it charges, and it won't stop until it's earned you first place back in the liftline. It notched a No. 2 ranking in Stability but was last in the category for Forgiveness. It's not quick or smeary, and it will buck you in a second if you get off-balance. Difficult to ride, yes, but it rewards those willing to brave it with an unwavering commitment to burly lines. Wood core, titanium layers, sandwich sidewall construction. Whoa.
