K2 Rictor Ski

Powder skis with rocker—an upward bend at the tip and tails, to help lift them out of the snow—make skiing soft stuff much easier. Now, K2 is betting this new shape will change the way we ski groomed snow, too. Almost its entire line of alpine skis, like the Rictor, seen here (127/80/109), now have some degree of rocker—helping them plane in soft and variable snow without sacrificing carving power on hardpack. $800; k2skis.com
