Yes, the drippy paint graphic is super-cool, but there's nothing shallow about the 98. A wood core with sandwich construction and carbon I-Beam inserts, which add torsional rigidity without weight, make it a serious ride. It maintains good float and scored no. 1 in Quickness, too, versatile in trees and bumps. Testers were equivocal about whether the V-shaped "powder hull" makes it surfier, but they agreed nothing blasted better through crud. "A versatile ski you can count on," said Moscarella.
