The combination of the width and rocker tip of the Megawatt make it easy to plow over anything. The rocker tip takes away about the front 1/5 of the ski which makes it ski like it is a lot shorter than it is. The Megawatt allows you to bend your knees into the turn way more than with traditional cut skis. I took them down groomers, bumps and crud and the megawatt handled it all. Watch the video above.
I did have some tendencies to crossing my tips, but it never resulted in a fall. They are super heavy, but that is to be expected with a ski like this.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
The 2010 Megawatt is one of the funnest, most versatilest (forgive my poor grammar) skis available. Because of the rocker tips that help keep the tips on top, it skis amazing in all conditions despite its size. For backcountry use dynafit bindings are a must. This could easy be a one quiver ski. BD has also improved edging on the Megawatts to improve performance on hard pack. The graphics are similar style to past versions but mostly blue instead of white.
