Tester's Review

Back bowls (and backcountry) are its forte, but it also carves clean, damp arcs on hardpack. Its smooth flex is a joy to ride, but it doesn't rocket you out of turns--for better or worse. The tip is hulled like a boat, giving directional control in deep snow. Its rockered, twin-tip design makes it smeary, but there's plenty of edge contact.
