BEST FOR: Aggressive skiers.

THE TEST: We tried to find a downside to Rottefella’s lighter and flexier version of the classic NTN Freeride, but we couldn’t. The Freedom retains the Freeride’s commanding lateral power, semi-releasable safety, and near infinite adjustability, but thanks to a redesigned tour mode that’s almost completely free (there’s just a touch of forward tension), it taxed us a lot less while climbing. “Smooth, powerful, and efficient,” concluded one tester.

THE VERDICT: Pair ’em with the fattest skis you own. 3.3 lbs

Tourability: 4
Power: 4.5
