If the elegant graphic is a hint, the new Nomad RKR is for the all-mountain artist. The tip and tail rocker make it hyper-playful and open up new creative avenues down every line, while underfoot camber provides enough backbone to let you put down compact carves on hardpack when you're fully angulated. "So light and rhythmic," said one tester of its bouncy attitude. It's not a big charger, but if your day consists of pillow drops, ledgy chutes, forest dwelling, and a fresh track or two, the RKR has your back. All of these Testers' Choice-worthy attributes make it a capable Western one-ski quiver or Eastern pow ski.
