PROSKILAB™ reviewers comments

Less energetic than the Laser SC and less precise than the Elite LT Ti, the Zone 12 from Dynastar stands out for its exhilarating performance and consistent behaviour. Very happy in all types of turn, the ski is well balanced, with flex distribution that requires a certain degree of physical engagement and technical know-how. The ski enters the turn with ease, grip is excellent, pressure is solid and reliable and the ski can be effortlessly controlled in turns. Only the rebound is slightly under par due to a somewhat over-flexible tail. A thoroughly enjoyable and fun to use ski, riders will quickly gain confidence, helping to maximise their performance. Like other models in the series, the Speedzone 12 is a great success for Dynastar. The model is recommended for a wide range of riders, from intermediary to expert, who’re looking for a ski that’s nimble, versatile and playful and will give them a lot of enjoyment.

Review: Pros

  • Good overall performance
  • Good turn stability
  • Great carved turns
  • Excellent compromise between accessibility/performance
  • Will help the rider make progress
  • Versatile in short and long turns
  • A playful and responsive ski that’s a lot of fun

Review: Cons

  • Slightly bendy tail means it lacks a bit of rebound
  • Performance slightly less convincing at very high speed

Manufacturer's remarks

With its race technology and packed snow performance design, the brand new SPEED ZONE 12 Ti delivers a new level of comfort, power and precision with a highly versatile shape and a short 15m radius. The ski boasts the innovative POWERDRIVE active suspension principle, which acts like the sleek body of a sports car. It cushions variations in the terrain, and eradicates instability by planting the ski firmly to the snow for smooth ski-snow contact before unleashing thrilling, powerful and dynamic acceleration, at the same time providing great bite and control. The ski tip rocker enhances entry, while retaining the ski’s dynamism and power. Energy, rebound and impulsion make this a high-performing and fun-to-use ski!
