Just like all-mountain skis that can handle flats, steeps, and ungroomed conditions, the Cascadia is suited to a broad range of runners—from casual joggers to all-day ­adventurers—on diverse terrain. Toothy traction gripped gnarly trails, a secure fit created enough confidence for testers to plow over obstacles, and ample cushioning saved feet during lengthy endeavors. ­“Supremely comfortable!” gushed one tester after a nine-mile run on rolling crushed gravel. “I would tromp all day through mulch and knives in this shoe,” said another. BEST FOR: Those who tackle a wide variety of terrain. 12.2 oz
