    Individual Review Long-Term Review: 2018 Head Kore 93

    In the past, Head has done a great job with its awesome race skis, as well as the Supershape, Monster, and Instinct collections. All have received critical and consumer praise, and no one can question Head's race results. The hole was Head's big-mountain skis; while they skied well, they never...

    Individual Review Long-Term Review: 2018 K2 Pinnacle 95

    K2 went back to the drawing board with the new Pinnacle 95. It didn't fix what wasn't broken but evolved a few things by modifying the construction and extending the wheelbase.

Most of you are familiar with the history, but as a quick overview: Jason Levinthal pretty much invented...

    Is Print Dead?

    There was a time before the 1s and 0s of the digital age that skiers had to wait until fall when the new buyers' guide arrived in the mail. It was almost an inch thick, a true skier's bible; it made me feel like a kid on Christmas morning. I would wash my hands first, so I wouldn't get the pages...

    Cage Match Comparison 2017 Nordica Enforcer 93 vs 2017 Nordica Enforcer 100

    We often get questions about comparing two models in the same collection that are still close in application. When Nordica hinted to us 18 months ago that it was going to reintroduce the Enforcer name, we were nervously excited but frankly didn't know what to expect. The old Enforcer was a...
