With high scores in Playfulness and Quickness, the Genesis 96 was an easy tester favorite. “Zippy little skis,” said one tester. “Perfect for an intermediate skier.” That zippiness might be attributed to its heart of bamboo and poplar, with class-leading forgiveness provided by a well-tuned rocker profile that initiated turns almost as easily as it released them. “Fun enough in pow and chunder to make it one-ski-quiver worthy.
Cute graphics and quality design makes this ski a turn-on as soon as you meet it.” First impression goes a long way; it’s true with people and it’s true with skis. The Genesis 96 is one of those skis that just looks like a fun, high quality product, and it is.
The Genesis 96 sports a new rocker profile, but has the same core construction. With slightly less rocker than the previous generations, the Genesis 96 now has greater edge contact making it more versatile in all snow conditions. Full review here
