BEST FOR: Race-ski performance without the demands.
THE TEST: With a tight 14.3-meter turn radius, a powerful system-style binding, and Head’s World Cup race construction, this Austrian setup should have tossed us Yanks around by our Cinnabons. But for all its power and edge penetration, the rebound is smooth and predictable.
THE VERDICT: More fun than a beer tent full of Austrians. 133/80/111
