Tester's Review

The Aura awes us again with its smooth, damp power. It's not picky about terrain-wide enough to smear pow, grippy enough to roostertail on hardpack-as long as it's following its preferred speed-Mach 2. It's unwieldy in tight trees (it's last among winners for Quickness) and will run away from you if given the chance. And that pingy sound? Might be the titanium laminates (ah, music to our ears). "Stomps cliffs, shreds crud, bombs pow and rips groomers like a GS ski," said Scott.
