BEST FOR: Big-mountain powder days.
THE TEST: The new Rocker 2 is at its best when it’s sniffing out hidden powder stashes—these are nimble, quick, loose soft-snow skis. The buttery Rocker 2 lacks high-speed stability and edging power, but you won’t think about that when you’re throwing them into powder piles in the forest or detonating fluff bumps beneath the chair.
THE VERDICT: Perfect for soft glades, meadows, and mellow bowls. “Bouncy, smear-turning, drift-busting, good-time skis,” said one tester. 139/115/131
