If your motive is to carve up the corduroy or arc down the beer league course, than the Motive 86 may be your ski. Testers gave it high marks for carving: "Feels like a GS ski," Gaudet said. "This is a go-fast, Austrian heritage ski," added Attridge. The Motive 86 has an 86-millimeter waist and a long freeride rockered tip for forays into soft and cut-up snow. Construction includes ABS sidewalls, a wood core and a combination of carbon and titanium used in the aerospace industry and known for its high strength-to-weight ratio. "Ouch! This ski kicked me around in the crud and bumps," quipped Dittmar. "But it has impressive carving ability and particularly good edge hold in the bottom half of the turn."
