112/79/96; 5 lb., 11 oz.; $599If the name doesn't tip you off, run your peepers over the FreeRando's mildly split tip and tail, which facilitate fast skin changes during big races. And check the weight: It's the only sub-six ski in our test. Gripes: Once pointed downhill, the FreeRando felt wishy-washy. Props: You'll beat the lift (or the competition) to the top.
