Just about every tester from intermediate to expert loved the Mya 8’s fluid ride. “Carves awesome and cuts through crud with ease,” said one tester. A touch of rocker in the front end makes slow-turn initiations a breeze. But when we pushed it to top speed, the early rise seemed to disappear and all we got was great edge hold. (Head stacks denser wood at the edge of the ski to increase power transfer.) Then, when it came time to shut it down, the rocker returned for feathery finishes—meaning you can dump speed easily. 130/84/112
