The ski that started the Torsion Bow revolution is still arcing hard turns. The asymmetric construction of the Crossbow directs power to the inside edge of the ski, holding at any speed. As you crank turns, the Torsion Bow increases the ski’s torsional rigidity and stability. This means you can ski harder and faster with rising confidence. Quicker and more versatile than the Havoc yet wider and more powerful than the Ethic, this is the turning machine to accommodate aggressive skiers with big boots.

Voted 5/5

I love this ski. As a mid-fat, it performs really well in a wide variety of snow situations. I ski the 187 because I'm a bigger guy, and it holds edge on all kinds of stuff.

Edit: this ski is discontinued.
