DYNASTAR SPEED 963 * ON-PISTE
BEST FOR: Making fast, tight turns in firm snow.
Judge this book by its cover. A deep sidecut, short stature and hefty weight suggested a tight-turning speed demon that can crush through anything. That’s just what testers found. “What a fun little firecracker,” wrote Steve Acciaroli. “Lively and quick.” It feels like a detuned race ski and, indeed, it shares the same Hybrid Core as Dynastar’s FIS slalom skis. It’s a mix of wood and polyurethane, a rubbery material that smooths out the ride. Just thinking about turning seemed to be enough to set it on edge. A sheet of metal that tapers into a V at the tip and tail adds stability and torsional power. It was happiest carving tight turns, and held on no matter how hard we pushed. But in longer turns it felt a little jittery. If you like to turn, rather than bomb, this should be your groomer ski.
