The Pure has a very specific purpose: going really fast on big terrain, especially in cruddy and challenging conditions. “It’s very stiff and its design gives it great stability,” said one tester. “The Pure is the least playful ski of the test,” added another. “It’s crazy stable and holds an edge amazingly well. It would be considered playful on a race course.” If you’re the type of skier who doesn’t know the meaning of skiing slowly and calmly, you may want to put a pair of Pures on your feet this season.
