THE CHANGELING

Good for Groomed Runs

Twist the Power Switch on the tail 90 degrees from “dynamic” to “power” mode and the Tigershark morphs from a damp, stable cruiser to an unrelenting high-energy carver. The switch engages two slender carbon-fiber rods inside the ski that load up the tip and tail. Does it work? Indeed it does. Most testers agreed that the change was noticeable. But then, most of us just left it in power mode. Except one guy: “After a burger and a beer, I’d take them down a notch,” said our Wisconsin-raised tester. 124/79/108; binding included; volkl.com
