The Gotama has become a ski everyone expects to be perfect, and the 2012/13 model lives up to its reputation. “As always, this ski is sick,” commented a tester. “It holds an edge like a race ski. It’s faster than Jimmie Johnson.” The long, early rise that starts just in front of the binding allows for an exceptionally smooth transition edge to edge while maintaining impressive float, and its relative stiffness adds stability. “I found peace and harmony on this ski,” commented a tester.
