Dynastar Speed Zone 12 Ti (Konect) 2019

PROSKILAB™ reviewers' comments

In 2018, the Speed Zone 12 Ti won the coveted PROSKILAB "Best Ski" award and scored very well in many other ski reviews as well. This year, it still holds a good position in our selection of the best skis on the market. However, it dropped a few spots in the rankings, probably due to the arrival of new competitors, softer snow conditions, and slight changes to the ski's structure (the Active Air Core wood core is lighter).

The ski’s main features are the same. It is well-balanced, smooth, and performs well. It is predictable and inspires confidence.

The ski is fun and generally performs well. However, the testers felt that its performance was less intuitive than last year. In particular, while it is very comfortable making turns in its carving radius, it is difficult to change the radius of the turn. You also need to be well-centered on the ski.

The Speed Zone 12 Ti has become a benchmark in this category and we recommend it for strong intermediate to advanced skiers looking for an easy carving ski.

Manufacturer's remarks

As powerful and precise as a race ski, with smoothness and agility to boot. The Dynastar SPEED ZONE 12 Ti ski gives you all the smoothness and control of the Powerdrive Piste technology developed specially by our race department. As strong in short turns as it is in Giant Slalom turns, skiers will conquer every challenge they meet on the slopes on this surprisingly light and lively ski. Its new Active Air Core is 17% lighter. Full of finesse.
