With its easy frontside shape, the Experience 100 HD had high marks for its performance on groomers. "The ski was easy to engage," says John Clary Davies, who founded the Anti-Donkey Ball Rocker movement. "I found the sweet spot immediately." Adds Aaron Hansen, "This ski is snappy and holds its edge very well." The new "HD" version has a carbon fiber and basalt matrix weave with a poplar core, which means that while it is lacking in energy and playfulness, it is a solid ride for firm snow. "This ski just wants to slide back and forth on a nice, long groomer," says Davies. Doesn't everyone?
