Product Info

Dynastar 6th Sense Slicer Skis 2012: The Dynastar 6th Sense Slicer Skis dissect every aspect of the mountain with versatile precision. The Twin Rockered camber profile and mid-fat 98mm waist surf through powder and heavy chop, smearing turns and buttering 3's with ease. With traditional camber underfoot and full wood core construction, the Slicer is a powerful and stable ride when negotiating variable terrain and snow conditions. Dynastar's Spring Blade technology encourages you to load up and send ‘er on natural and man-made features. The sturdy Torsion Box construction and notorious Spring Blade "pop" give skiers a playful and stable platform for railing on hardpack or hitting afternoon park sessions with afterbang to spare. Whether dining on pow-shots, table-tops, bumps or chutes the 6th Sense Slicer serves up tasty versatility for modern all-mountain rippers.

Product Details

Shape

Twin Tip Rocker has long, progressive rockers in the tip and tail, with a more radical height. The supporting length is reduced to the max, allowing exceptional pivoting of the twin tip skis. Since the tip and tail of the skis are freed, they pivot effortlessly in all types of snow. Flotation is easier, and even possible in switch. This is ideal for powder skiing, especially in the woods. Once back on the trail, this ski's natural camber and the rocker's progressiveness guarantee excellent all-mountain performance.

Construction

Wood Fiber Core traditional sandwich technology with a wood and fiberglass core gives the ski enormous fluidity and responsiveness. The absence of titanal sheets reduces weight significantly. The straight sidewalls ensure precise, effective transmission of the skier's movements.

Flex

Spring Blade is a machined Wood Core of varying thickness and the layering of the different fiber layers with different lengths offer extraordinary flex. This gives the ski awesome energy for jumping (pop effect) and great shock absorption when landing. This technology, when combined with specific sidecuts, offers riders the ideal mix for freestyle in both park & pipe and also in the backcountry.

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width that is equal to the ski waist width and at most 15 mm wider.

I bought my skis after demoing them at a Utah resort last spring, but saw them here and thought it wouldn't hurt to review them here on EVO. I consider myself an intermediate skier because I'm more into staying in control than going fast, but I like to explore varied terrain. At this point, there are very few situations I won't put myself in, but I'm not exactly at my best in icy, cruddy steep chutes or really deep rutted out moguls. Last spring I was dealing with deep snow that had melted and frozen over several times so it was pretty bumpy. I found the Sixth Sense Slicers handled these conditions with great stability - they didn't even rattle as I skidded over chunks of ice. Turning in moderately steep icy ravines suddenly became easy for me - and this was something that had previously intimidated me. Although made for powder, I find these skis handle ice well. Just spent a week with them in Vermont on icy groomers. I need to get them sharpened, but they grip well if you keep your edge. Even if you have to slide a little with them on steep, icy runs, they stay under you and turn easily. Sometimes I actually think the skis are doing all the work and have made me look like a better skier than I am. At the very least, they help just enough to boost my confidence in a big way. I haven't had the opportunity to use them in deep, fresh powder but they've certainly passed the test in the worst conditions possible.

      Comments about Dynastar 6th Sense Slicer Skis 2013:

      Bought for a gap between Volkl Bridge and Gotama and I have the big brother 6th sense Huge. This ski is so easy, fun and stable it will become my go to ski for everything but deep cut up and fresh (others do that better) Hard to find a ski that does so many things well such as dropping cornice and cut up ski out, heavy fresh in trees, quick and forgiving in bumps. Love the ski, I am not an ex racer so hard core carving is not on my list but this ski is surprisingly easy to put on edge and carve or pivot. Skis well backwards also.

          Comments about Dynastar 6th Sense Slicer Skis 2013:

          my age 42,i bought these skis for two reason ,needed new ones and curiosity how twin tips r different. Im pass age that i can afford jumps and all crazy brave stuff many of you can do easy. Im lucky that i found encourage to stand on skis after injury i experienced as a kid. Broken part of ski slashed my face and knock of my tooth. That was in 1978 way before safety bindings on skis, at least in eastern europe. Anyway .... My Volki older skis didnt ride as i was hoping they were rattling. I decided to try something new and also cheaper.I found these on Evo for $271 63%off after putting Salomon STH 12 Oversized Ski Bindings on it also from Evo i took my new skis for ride to Blue Mountain in PA.The weather was in mid 40sF snow kind of slushy but not watery. I was very surprised how fast they were and great handling on snow. Also i tried double black diamond slope with bumps skis performed nice and cut nicely on iced pockets which are very common on east cost. I had a good time skiing and the only one thing is to try them on Vermont and than go to the West feel the real deal skiing. I believe those skis can do much more that i Can.Have a nice skiing!

          Comments about Dynastar 6th Sense Slicer Skis 2013:

          This medium fat ski excels in powder and choppy snow. The flex is surprisingly soft yet torsionally rigid. Actually makes for a decent bump ski in soft snow. On the hard pack at higher speeds it does carve fairly well but the wide waist prevents it from being a truly stable ski. Stick to the fresh snow and you'll be smiling all day long.

          Of note, I am using these as tele skis.
