BEST FOR: One-ski weekends.
THE TEST: A big part of the reason the new-to-the-line Two handled all condi- tions well is that it features subtle taper in the tail and tip, meaning the widest part of the ski is farther back on the shovel. That’s a new trait from Völkl, and it helps keep the ski from getting grabby in crud. Add Völkl’s full rocker and the Two turns at synapse speed but delivers plenty of oomph in the belly of the turn. 146/124/138
THE VERDICT: Have room for only one pair? This is it.
