Verdict: The Legend Eden is a rewarding, positive feeling ski that is easy to initiate into turns, where it featured a wonderfully consistent edge hold wherever our testers took it. One tester said she felt like she was “attached to the snow” because of the damp feel underfoot—which does come at the expense of rebound—and that she loved how smooth that sensation felt at higher speeds and turns with a medium radius. Definitely a favorite in the class.
