The Pow NAS was inspired by the late Jamie Pierre, along with Mike Wilson and Tim Dutton. If you’re familiar with these individuals, you’ll know that they live up to the saying, “Go big or go home.” So it’s no surprise that the Pow NAS is built for hard-charging rippers. “This ski is so much fun. It was great everywhere, and it’s so good for solid stomps,” said one tester. Its reCurve shape (rockered tip and tail with camber underfoot) ensures you’ll float when you need to and hold fast on edge. The serrated Magne-Traction edges work to your advantage. Plus, the bio-plastic topsheets are made from beans. Cool beans!
