BEST FOR: All-mountain skiers who take an occasional lap through the park.

THE TEST: When you fully weight the Theory, the tip and tail bend up, floating you in soft snow and making it easier to pivot. Tip this true twin tip into a carve, however, and they reach outward at the apex of the turn, extending the running length and boosting edge hold and stability.

THE VERDICT: Atomic calls it All-Mountain rocker—and it works. “Grips and rips,” said one tester. “Easy to slink through tight trees, but this squirrel has nuts.” 132/95/121

Overall: 4.5
Carving: 4.3
Resort Float: 4
