BEST FOR: Keeping it pegged all day on groomers.

THE TEST: Because the Crimson Ti has a bit of tip rocker, you don’t have to actively bend the front of the ski into turns, which means you can stand more upright and concentrate on feathering the edges. A damping wood core reinforced with two titanium layers and vertical sidewalls underfoot (the rest is a hybrid cap-sidewall construction) dish up excellent edge penetration. “Strong edging underfoot,” said one tester. “Aggressive energy return when you release the turn.”

THE VERDICT: If you like sweeping turns at high speeds on hard snow but don’t want to swap out skis when conditions soften, your chariot awaits. 131.5/88/117

Overall: 4
Stability: 4.4
Edge Hold: 4.8
