THE SELL: A forgiving all-mountain ride with race-ski performance and a traditional feel. THE TEST: More evidence of the new status quo—without rocker this ski would be too fat for average riders to bend into a turn. Now you just tip it and rip it. A solid wood core and a squared-off tail make it worthy of arced turns on hardpack. “It makes you feel like a hero,” said a six-foot, 180-pound tester with a racing and freeskiing pedigree. More than anything, though, we were impressed with the lack of a learning curve on the Sentinel. You don’t have to adapt your style to the ski. THE VERDICT: As adept at swooping GS turns as it is floating through resort powder. 129/95/121

Overall: 4.5
Carving: 4 
Float: 4.5
