Dynastar 2019 ski reviews
Already a winner last year, the Speed Master GS with the R22 race plate reaffirms its superior performance this year.
Along with its twin the Rossignol Hero Master, this ski outperformed all the other skis in the "Giant Slalom" category where we look for high-performance skis that are still accessible to recreational skiers.
The skis stand out for their exceptional performance on hard pack... Read on
With its racing plate, the Dynastar Speed Master excelled in the "Giant Slalom" category. Here, the same ski is in a less specialized category and features the simple "Konect" plate from the Rossignol group (which owns Dynastar). The Konect plate is geared more towards a recreational skier.
Having a more flexible plate does not alter the ski's intrinsic characteristics, and it retains... Read on
In this category, we are looking for skis that are easy for lower level skiers to use, but that will also allow them to progress to carving.
The Speed Zone 7 from Dynastar is a perfect match for this category.
The ski is very accessible, intuitive, easy to handle: "It turns on its own." Very little physical effort is needed and the ski responds to the slightest movement of the skier. It... Read on
This year, the Dynastar Speed Elite won the "Best Ski 2019" award for this category.

However, the central mounting of the binding made it impossible to add forward pressure when turning aggressively. The longer tail also impeded pivoting in variable and heavy snow.

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... Read on
The Dynastar Mythic 97 CA is fun and easy to control. It's an easy ski that is relatively soft despite what the letters CA in its name (for Carbon) would have us think.
The pro testers appreciated how fun and accessible the ski was in most snow conditions: "a solid ski that is easy to control," "an easy ski," "enjoyable on all types of snow...”
The Mythic 97 CA... Read on
