Official Selection 2013
Tester's Review

In the new age of fat skis, an 88-millimeter waist doesn't typically scream "floaty." But that's exactly how the Koa 88 and its wide rockered tip felt in everything from wind-buff to remnant powder pockets. Shifty in the glades, it preferred to seek out off-piste lines rather than rail groomers. Bigger testers noted that it could be overpowered, but light testers loved its zippiness all around the mountain.
