BEST FOR: Loading up the G’s.

THE TEST: We like railing turns on early-morning corduroy, too. We just don’t like twitchy race gear aggravating our hangovers. The Motive 86 is the solution. A ski of this width—86 millimeters underfoot—would have been a powder tool during the Clinton years. But now you get the benefits of edge hold and dynamic rebound. Plus, you don’t have to muscle it into turns, thanks to subtle tip rocker. “Like a soft race ski—with cojones,” said one tester. Sí, Cojones. 128/86/116

THE VERDICT: east coast or Summit county, colorado, skier? Or just a lover of hardpack? You need the Motive in your quiver.
