THE SELL: A powerful traditional-camber ski for those who spend most of their time on groomers. THE TEST: You don’t see many groomer shots on magazine covers anymore, but whipping linked turns on corduroy is still damn fun. With an 18-meter turning radius, the 82 Ti has enough sidecut to crank short swing turns down the fall line, but because the tail isn’t completely oversize, you can seamlessly transition to sweeping GS arcs, too. “Dynamic and fully energized but not squirrelly or twitchy,” wrote one 155-pound tester. “You can mix up the turn shape at will.” THE VERDICT: For beer-league racing or gentle turns with the kids, this is one of the most versatile frontside skis we’ve ever tested. 126/82/112
