EDITOR'S PICKS

#1 Salomon- Suspect


Editor's Pick The Salomon Suspect continues to blanket the competition landscape, garnering a number of podium finishes. If it’s good enough for the likes of Bobby Brown and Sammy Carlson, Salomon must have struck a chord. More info
Playfulness: 4.4 Stability: 4.9 Swing Weight: 4.8 Carving: 5 OVERALL: 19.1

#2 Volkl- Ledge


The Ledge is a slightly smaller, slightly less aggressive little brother to the the Volkl Wall. Meant for exploring the park, the generous (and symmetrical!) sidecut coupled with the smaller size make it a "more playful offering to the Wall. Ideal for entry level park skiers with an appetite for progression," expounds one tester. More info

#3 Volkl- Wall


There is no secret why the Volkl Wall has gone three-for-three as an Editor's Pick in our Buyer's Guides. Volkl has imbued the serious park stick with a fully symmetrical sidecut, protective and resilient construction sheath known as Toughbox Construction and a light Sensorwood core, making the Wall "snappy, stable, light, yet still very playful," according to one tester.
