“This is an All-Mountain, all-conditions ski,” Minneci said. “It’s as well-rounded as they come.” Part of the well-rounded personality comes from HEAD’s ERA 3.0 technology, which combines rocker, radius and rebound. Tip rocker and vibration-absorbing Intellifibers in the tip are combined with a progressive radius for better edge contact and soft snow performance. The 84 millimeter-waisted MYA 8 has a light wood core built with denser wood over the edges for edge-to-edge performance. Testers described the ski with adjectives like “safe, secure, responsive” and gave it high scores for carving and stability. The PowerRail plates and wide binding add to edge hold, prompting comments such as “holds like a champ,” according to Dumais. “It’s like a Genie: Your wish is its command.”
