Ski designers have experimented with rocker (upward bend) and camber (concave flex) for years, but the Elan Amphibio Waveflex 14 perfects how the two technologies work in tandem. The titanium, wood-cored skis sport camber on the inside edges of an otherwise rockered profile. This leads to dedicated left and right skis with the edge to bite into hard snow and the curve to float in the soft stuff. [$1,000; amphibio.elanskis.com]
