For 2020, Salomon has decided to make some bold choices in an effort to make their newly redesigned QST 99 stand out from the crowded "100mm All Mountain" ski category. What bold choices, exactly? Well, take for instance the decision to skip the traditional layers of titanal in favor of a full layer of their proprietary Carbon Flax (C/FX) weave, as well as the inclusion of cork in the tips. The result of Salomon's efforts is a stable, damp, and versatile ski that we think will be loved by the masses. Read more in this complete ski review!

Over the past few years, Rossignol has offered an ultra-secretive ski known only as the "Black Ops." In previous years, both availability and information about the ski were hard to come by. This year, for the first time ever, Rossignol has decided to peel back the curtain just the slightest bit by offering the Black Ops in a 98 and 118 width. Still, specific details regarding the ski's construction details remain sparse, making it the perfect candidate for an on-snow ski review. To learn more about this secretive, yet incredible ski, click through and read our full review!

Last year when Volkl announced the new M5 Mantra, there was a sect of Mantra lovers who weren't over-the-top excited about a narrower Mantra. While we still love the M5, as do many skiers, those who don't should be extremely excited about the new 2020 Volkl Mantra 102. Last season, we had the chance to take these skis out a number of times, both at our 2020 Ski Test (which we'll be posting in the coming months), but also for the full ski review treatment. What we found was an extremely impressive, powerful, playful, edge holding machine of a ski that begs for speed. There's plenty to talk about with the Volkl Mantra 102, so we highly recommend clicking through to learn more!
