BEST FOR: Advanced park riders looking for more stability.

THE TEST: The new camber mashup on the true-twin CrossRocket is unlike any we’ve seen: there’s a diamond of traditional camber that extends from the center to just outside the bindings, followed by rocker to the tips. Once we got used to it, the extra surface area and edge contact gave us more control on all types of snow, including steeps, and added ollie power. Our park players reported smooth sailing off big booters and out of the pipe, followed by stable landings.

THE VERDICT: The wacky yet stable camber profile and soft flex make it park perfect. Just heed the steep learning curve.
