Next season, the Cochise undergoes its biggest modifications yet.
Line Skis has redesigned the hugely popular Sir Francis Bacon.
The ~105mm underfoot all-mountain category is a crowded one, and the Liberty Helix stands out with great edge hold and more energy & snap than most skis in its class.
It takes a lot to stand out in the category of directional, ~105mm-underfoot skis. See how the Kingswood Archetype fared.
The Praxis GPO is not a straightforward ski, but it’s a ski that offers a blend of liveliness and power that we haven’t seen before.
The Fischer Motive 86 Ti provides a very nice blend of performance characteristics while showing no significant shortcomings or compromises.
We take a 2nd Look at the Moment Belafonte, and put it up against the Line Supernatural 108.
Update: with time now on the 180cm Brahma, we compare it to the 187cm Brahma and the 180cm Blizzard Bonafide.
After 4 days on snow, the Whitedot Director is quite promising as another entry in the playful charger category.
If the Blister Pro is THE playful charger, the current Bibby is THE jibby charger.
The Blizzard Peacemaker and Moment PB&J are two of the most stable freestyle all-mountain skis we’ve tested, so we put them head-to-head.
The Ski Logik Front Burner is a specialized frontside tool that’s great for those looking to make lots of short, dynamic turns and high-angle carves.
We take a 2nd Look at the Armada Invictus, with lots of comparisons to other directional chargers.
Christmas came early this year in the form of the Blister Pro. Several of us have been on them now, here are our collective thoughts.
If you like the sound of a powerful, responsive ski for making aggressive, high-angle carves on groomers (both short and long), you’ll like the Fischer Progressor 900.
The Salomon X-Drive 8.0 is a very substantial frontside carver that isn’t out of place around the rest of the mountain, particularly when the snow isn’t deep.
The DPS Cassiar 85 is a fun, energetic, frontside carver that is quite capable off-piste, too.
We’ve heaped a lot of praise on both the Supernatural 108 and the Cochise, so we spent several days A / B-ing the two skis at Taos—same runs, same conditions.
The new Salomon X-Drive 8.8 FS is a relatively narrow, super stable ski that shines at speed and in demanding terrain or conditions.
The Governor and the Blizzard Bodacious are two of our favorite substantial, directional pow skis. Time for a ‘Vs.’ review. (And we throw in comparisons to a number of other skis, too.)
