These points comparing and contrasting our different ski lines and models may help!
Boost Series skis are for downhill-oriented Freeride skiers (or days). The Boost 99 is for epic powder days and high-speed, long-radius surfing turns. The Boost 94 is for more variable conditions and will reward technically advanced skiers who like to descend hard and fast. The Boost 99 is more forgiving and better for more relaxed descending. If descending “on point” excites you and doesn’t intimidate you in the least, ski the Boost 94. If you aren't quite as hard charging, ski the Boost 99.
Core Series skis are for skiers who are happy to sacrifice a slight bit of climbing ease for downhill performance - whether that be fast and aggressive descending for advanced downhillers or more forgiving descending for less advanced descenders. Suited for people who will ski a variety of conditions, on and off-piste. The Core 84 Lite and Core 89 Lite may be the best choices for skiers under 125 pounds.
Ultra Series skis are for skiers with advanced technical descent skills who prioritize ease of climbing and are confident in their abilities to descend a wide variety of challenging conditions. Non-rockered tails can make completing turns harder in heavy snow conditions, but give you more edge grip and security when you need it. The Ultra Series skis are fantastic carvers on firm snow but are also prized by skiers who are rarely on-piste.
Pure Series skis are the “People's Ski" for beginners and intermediates. They are perfect for those who frequently ski on-piste, whether they have perfected their carving skills or are still working on it. Mostly on-piste? Pure 75. More off-piste? Pure 90. Mix it up? Pure 85.
Special Series - the Off Limits is a short (130cm) and wide (130-90-110) ski intended as an approach ski - ditch the snow shoes! - while also popular as a powder ski on thickly forested slopes, and even as a park ski. The Off Trace is a backcountry nordic ski with integrated mid-ski skins for low angle trails and forging our own path.
