Dynastar Legend 88 2019

Reviewed by PROSKILAB

PROSKILAB™ reviewers comments

The reviewers were impressed by the Legend 88's qualities but found the bindings too central.

The ski has many qualities and the reviewers found it accessible, with easy turn initiation and rotation.

However, the central positioning of the binding made it impossible to add forward pressure in aggressive rides. The imposing tail in uneven snow conditions and heavy snow hampers rotation.

We tried mounting the bindings 4cm further back and this helped to improve the ski's behavior.

The Legend 88 is a very good ski that we recommend for intermediary to good riders. It's probably worth trying to mount the bindings a bit further back than the central positioning recommended by the maker.

Review: Pros

  • Good overall behavior
  • An easy and enjoyable ski for cruising
  • Behaves well on the groomed trails (apart from our comments below)

Review: Cons

  • Central positioning required
  • Long tail due to centralization of bindings, hampering rides in the crud and even in powder

Manufacturer's remarks

The legendary DNA. A pure Free All Mountain, with all of the Dynastar genes, from the most all mountain-oriented to the most alpine. Poplar + Titanal core sandwich construction for irreproachable grip on the hardest groomed trailns; new Powerdrive technology for unfailing consistency no matter what the snow. Good pilot needed.
