The new MOMENT Deathwish is a lot less terrifying than either its name or its unorthodox design would suggest. One thing’s certain: you’ll want to take a peek at this oddity that looks far stranger than it behaves.
The Line Sir Francis Bacon is a really good ski for just about everything, from groomers to hand drags. And you know what’s really fun? Being on a ski that’s good at just about everything.
“No all-mountain ski will shine in every discipline, but the degree to which the 108 does so well in each area—even some real jibbing—and can transition from one to the other so smoothly and easily—is really remarkable.”
Eric Pollard and Line have created a playful pow ski with a backbone. Freestyle-minded skiers ought to be excited.
This season’s Line Influence 115 has been redesigned, and it is going to appeal to a different—and broader—crowd.
Jason Hutchins’ time on the 182cm Black Diamond Zealot left him “nothing but impressed.” If you’re a lighter skier looking for a versatile ski (that doubles as a very good backcountry tool), take a look.
We’ve looked at the Blizzard Cochise before, but this is different: here’s a review from Blizzard athlete Rob Dickinson, a smart comp skier with podium finishes on the Cochise. It’s not our usual M.O., but we’ll explain.
Perhaps the most surprising thing about the Epic Planks Ripper is that, so far, the manufacturer’s description seems to be right on the money. (It’s rare we say things like that around here.)
The Atomic Punx has developed a strong reputation coming into this season: durable yet light, solid yet nimble. But what’s really intriguing is its versatility.
This is the story of a ski reportedly built by 300-lb-benching guys with tats. It’s also a story about obsession and digital calipers. But most of all, it’s the story of the evolution of a big-mountain ski that looks like it is going to absolutely rip.
With a generous amount of tip and tail rocker, a 122mm waist, and a flat camber profile underfoot, the Epic Planks Crop Duster is made primarily to float and smear. But we’re still curious to see how it holds up in variable conditions….
On paper, for an all-mountain, one-ski quiver, everything about the Epic Planks Ripper seems well thought out.
The Rossignol Squad 7 is one of our favorite new big-mountain boards of the upcoming season. Find out how it fared in Niseko, Japan, at Alta, and around Taos.
If you are looking for a ~100mm wide, poppy, twin-tipped, all-mountain ski that feels very comfortable on both very firm and soft snow, the Nordica Soul Rider should be near the top of your list.
The Praxis MVP is a serious contender for the “Most Versatile Player” award in this season’s class of ~110mm wide skis.
The Praxis MVP is a made-to-order ski. Our pair was made by—and for—Praxis’ own Kevin O’Meara. It’s a big-mountain comp ski built to play AND handle very high speeds. Two worlds collide.
Here are our early impressions of Sean Pettit’s new pro-model, the K2 Pettitor.
The strength of the Dynastar Cham 107 is in its versatility. It’s a multi-tool that does a lot of things well rather than absolutely stand out in a specific condition or application.
The Fischer Big Stix 110 shines precisely where most tip and tail rockered skis falter. Take a look.
The new Salomon Rocker2 115 is a big-mountain gun that shows some range—surprisingly easy and fun on groomers, yet still likely to satisfy the hard-charging crowd on any pow day.
