The graphics have that curlicue font that the Euro designers equate with "feminine," but make no mistake: What lies under that topsheet-wood core, sandwich construction and vertical sidewalls-does not condescend. The IQ Max binding system (also available with a Slider that accommodates any binding for $850) instantly transfers power from foot to edge, so, as long as you stay in the sweet spot, it rips. "Great for a strong skier; loves the short swing," said Jennifer Sletten. Available with binding for $1,100 or with a Slider plate, which accommodates any binding, for $850.
