The quick, light, and agile Cham 2.0 97 didn’t fool Crystal Sagan. She took this speed-loving ski for a ride. “I would ski them all day and have a good time, but it’s all business, no pleasure,” says Sagan. Moderate tip rocker shortens the ski’s footprint for nimble turns, while camber underfoot helps it hold an aggressive edge through chop and chunder. Beware of the tail, which wants to take the wheel, making it hard to disengage from turns. Bonus: A paulownia wood core makes the ski light enough to use with a touring setup, which means you’re not sacrificing performance for weight in the back- country.
