Good for All Mountain
Don't let the new costume fool you. El Hombre's guts are unchanged, and he still controls all corners of the ring–er, mountain. "It has good western all-mountain dimensions," said one tester, "and enough shape and torsional stiffness to rail on variable snow." It can be a bit heavy for long days out of bounds, but its moderate sidecut and stable footprint remain dependable when powder days give way to rot. 136/105/124, 8.6 lbs; genuineguidegear.com
