The Union described the Origin 106 as well-rounded, surfy, and smooth. A rocker-camber-rocker profile with a bamboo core, it's a friendly, all-around ski that wasn't too soft, nor too stiff, but just right. "So easy to control on big-mountain terrain, super smooth, and catch-free across the fall line," says Dylan Hall of New Hampshire's Ken Jones Ski Mart. For skiers looking for a more maneuverable frontside version, Liberty offers the same ski in a 96 width, which nomadic skier Ian Fohrman described as "chargy, fun, stable, but quick enough to hit bumps, tight trees, or billy goat around."
