Product Info

Dynastar 6th Sense Distorter Skis 2011: If you’re looking for an all mountain demon that will take you on the most exhilarating park laps you’ve ever had the pleasure of experiencing, look no further. The Dynastar 6th Sense Distorter Skis 2011 give you sufficient waist width to float in soft snow, yet truly shines on groomed runs and in the park due to its responsive design that utilizes Spring Blade technology. Reality only bites if you don't push the boundaries.

Product Details

Shape

The traditional camber construction allows the ski to be powerful and easy to rip in any condition or terrain.

Construction

Full length race department vertical sidewalls are used for ultimate edge grip, power and balance. The core is surrounded by multiaxial fiber wraps that enhance torsional stiffness which equals stability and rebound energy.

Flex

Features a Spring Blade wood core that is machined to varying thicknesses in addition to stacked fiber layers of different lengths laid in the tail to act as a spring and provide superior “pop”, and to absorb any landing shock. A wood core gives the best flex patterns to maximize power and provide complete stability and versatility.

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake that is equal to the waist width and at most 20mm wider. (brake width = ski width + 20mm)

This is my go-to ski for those days that dont have knee or waist deep powder, and even the icy days. The vertical sidewall does fantastic things for its carving ability and keeps a solid edge. Its nice and forgiving in the moguls and bumps, but stiff enough for a mid-weight agressive skier who likes to ski hard all the way down the mountain in any condition. Provides reasonable flotation in 6+ inches of snow, but its certainly not a full powder ski.

Overall, a great choice for an advanced skier as an all mountain ski, especially if you're on a budget.

Guess the skis works pretty good in most conditions. Not very well on very icy/hard stuff, and some might say they're too slim/narrow to be considered good powder skis . My experience is that as long as you're having good enough speed, it's no real trouble having fun in the backcountry (Pacific North-West heavy snow...).

However, I do not play around in any parks or doing a whole lot of jumps. So they might be awesome with something else than snow under them.

Good price.
All in all good value.

      Using them with PX 12 Look bindings as Dynastar recommends. Was a good choice. Bought those from [@] because their price was better. It has two mounting positions - one for skiing in the parks and the other for all mountain type skiing. I have mine mounted for the all mtn skiing type. Love it !

        Bought these skis as an upgrade to an old set of demos that I had been using for a while. Skied them 4 times thus far and continue to feel more comfortable on them. They are very responsive and have been great on the groomed and icy conditions we've had in the east this year. Heading out west in the next month and excited to put them to the test.

        These are incredable skis. The speed and control I got from the first use was just amazing. I used them on sludge wich would turn into ice very quickly and they never let me down at all. The only downside I found to them was that top edges scratched easily.

                Comments about Dynastar 6th Sense Distorter Skis 2011:

                I bought these skis after months of research, and I couldn't be any happier. Granted, these were bought to replace my 190cm parabolic skinny skis from 1999. I thought it would be hard to adjust to a wider ski, but these were like butter. I smiled from the minute I snapped into them. Over the course of a weekend I hit powder, ice, groomed, and crud and these skis held up incredibly well.

                I recommend these skis to anyone, especially at this killer price. You won't find a better deal, and you won't be disappointed. Plus, they look way cooler in person than they do online. They scratched up a little, but that was because I skied them pretty hard. It doesn't bother me, because I didn't buy them to look pretty. I bought them to ski.

                Tons of fun. Worth every penny and more.

                Just buy them already!

                  My son out grew his stuff so I moved him up into my 175 Dynaster "Nothing But Troubles". Wanted a similar go any ware do anything ski and the guys and Evo gave me some good options ( as always ). Based on my expirence with the NBTs I decided to purchase the 185 Dynaster 6th Sense Distorter. I ski in the North East ( PA, NY and sometimes VT ) For me these skis carve well, have good grip on the skied off spots, no issues ( no chatter ) when flying. Really Nice would buy them again in a heart beat!
