“Tools not jewels.” This has long been the saying for many skiers, gritting their teeth before dropping into a known rocky descent.

It may come as no surprise, but there aren’t many groomers in the backcountry. While this sentence appears to be silly at first glance, many manufacturers seem to design their backcountry skis to excel in the front country, not the backcountry. Combating this silly trend is Faction, who with the La Machine Mega, has created a ski made to excel off-piste, not on it. The Mega is a so..

Not just any nova, the Supernova from Majesty is an all-around, high-performance ski with a penchant for the soft white stuff. It partially achieves this versatility using a Cut-Off-Tail, cleverly called COT. By cutting off the tail and moving the skier's stance back on the ski, Majesty was able to make the Supernova maneuverable but stable enough for you to “let 'er rip” when the ..

Born high in the Tatra mountains of Poland, Majesty knows a thing or two about skiing. So, when Majesty made the Superpatrol Carbon Ski that touts a “Cut-off Tail,” we were naturally intrigued. Inspired by surfboards, this so-called “Cut-off Tail” shortens the length of the tail, shifting the skier's stance further back from the center. Combined with the adapted sidecut, the result..

Despite some widespread misconceptions, lightweight skis aren’t always overly stiff with the ski feel of a 2 x 4 plank. A case in point is the Salomon MTN 86 Pro. When demoing the skis for ourselves, we were blown away by just how damp the skis felt, no doubt due to the Cork Damplifier strategically placed to lessen vibration. The Flex profile was friendly and when combined with it..

There are a few things that are guaranteed in life. Death, gravity, taxes, and the strong performance of the Adret 85. With a similar hard-charging personality as its skinnier sibling, the Adret 85 sports a slightly more rounded (moderate) flex and wider waist width. This considerably improves its soft snow manners, pushing the ski into strong contention as a “one-ski quiver” or “d..
