Product Info

Arguably the single most versatile touring ski ever built, the Dynafit Manaslu Alpine Touring Ski has been upgraded with the bamboo and beech stringer core construction of the Stoke ski for better torsional rigidity and edge hold. The ski touring specific Scoop-Rocker in the tip rides up and over challenging snow with ease, and the category-leading light weight and clean Dynafit Speed Skin design lets you crush the uphill.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Scoop RockerSometimes referred to as the "backcountry bend," this smooth and consistently increasing tip rocker floats like crazy without giving up any more edgehold than necessary. Dimensions are specific to each ski length.


Dual Radius SidecutA wider radius at the tip gives stability at speed, while a sharper radius in the tail provides quick carving when the ski is put on edge. 33.5/19m @ 169, 35.4/21 m @ 178, 36.1/23m @ 187


Tapered TailA tapered ski tail makes slotting skis into backpack carry loops easier and lets the tips float a bit higher in deep snow.


Isocore Paulownia Ultralight CoreBeech and bamboo stringers added for strength, liveliness and rigidity


Core CoatingQuadraxial-Biaxial pre-preg guarantees maximal torsional stiffness and integrity of construction.


Sintered Graphite BaseMore durable, with improved gliding characteristics and better wax resorption

Additional Features

Skin AttachmentPatented SpeedSkin attachment is built into the ski - it's light, secure, and easy to de-skin without removing your skis.

      Comments about Dynafit Manaslu Skis 2014:

      The ski was one of the best "skinny" skis I have skied in a while. Definitely extremely light and very nimble even in the 187. I skied deep snow way better than I could have imagined. A little soft but can get over it with the actual weight of the ski. Dynafit uses minimalist edges and it may not be enough. I lightly grazed a rock meaning I wasn't stopped and the ski didn't clip off, in fact I thought it was crust under the new snow. I compressed/ ripped off the edge in about a foot long section of the ski. Being a mountaineering ski I was a little dissapointed with its overall durability. The ski should be able to handle some rock hits without totally ruining the ski, it was 4 days old.

      Comments about Dynafit Manaslu Skis 2014:

      When tested, the conditions were not ideal: heavy "mashed potatoes" snow that was hard to navigate on such a light ski. Definitely would recommend a wider, more damp ski for such conditions. However, the tour up Hyak was a dream. Probably the easiest, most efficient touring setup out there when combined with Dynafit bindings and Speed Skins. Ideally, I would use this ski for fast and light spring and volcano touring.

      Comments about Dynafit Manaslu Skis 2014:

      This ski is a classic. My main winter touring ski for the past 4 seasons, the Manaslu still leads the pack in the weight/width category and kicks butt in any kind of soft snow.

      For the Fearless, Fast Rider

      Comments about Dynafit Manaslu Skis 2014:

      It all starts with the Manaslu's construction. Beech and bamboo stringer stiffen up this stick to a hardened attack piece. Edge hold can hardly do justice to this ski's zip-and-throw out of a well laid turn. Fiberglass and biaxial carbon reinforcement in upper and lower layers simply add to the flavor of this hardened weapon for the slopes. Not meant for the leisurely ride but for the work-out driven skier looking to get the legs burning. Bring a chair for this ski, because if you're not ready to push these bad-boys to their potential, they'll put you in it.
