Power, performance, and, oh yeah, did we mention power? The Invictus 99 is constructed with two full-length, full-width sheets of titanal—so it is heavy. But point them downhill and it gallops like a trusty steed. The sweet spot is on edge, where a combo of carbon, Kevlar, poplar, and ash in the core add rebound and (even more) power to the turns. "I really didn't want to ski this ski—it felt too heavy," says veteran Gelande Quaffer Matt Hansen. "But as soon as I dropped into the fall line, I could tell this bruiser was worth the effort because it simply obliterated everything."
