Product Info

Dynastar Contact Cross Skis + PX 12 Fluid Bindings 2011: If you are a solid carver and live to tip and rip, the Dynastar Contact Cross Skis + PX 12 Fluid Bindings 2011 will bring you skiing bliss that will have you tearing down the hill like never before. This ski will hook like nobody’s business, and its shapely cut gives you the most performance for your money. Get ready for an on-hill ecstasy that won’t stop ‘til the lifts do.

Product Details

Shape

The Contact utilizes Autodrive Fluid Ultimate, which is a composite and rubber arm that extends from the binding plate forward connecting to the bi-material sidewalls for quick and precise turn initiation. The rubber booster stores energy from the turn and produces rebound at the end of the turn. Dual density vertical sidewalls add to the skiing experience by ensuring ultimate edge grip, power and balance.

Construction

Dynastar’s own personal Autodrive construction, a vertical construction under the foot and cap constructions at the extremities. The cap allows the ski to enter the turn with comfortable ease. Vertical sidewalls provide superior edge hold and power. The ratio of cap/sidewall can be changed depending on models performance level or intended use. The core is surrounded by multiaxial fiber wraps or multiaxial layers that enhance torsional stiffness which equals stability and rebound energy.

Dimensions

Turning radius :: 15m @ 158cm,165cm,172cm,178cm

                    I bought these skis for a trip to Utah. I know these are not powder skis but I live and ski east coast (Vermont). These skis were great in the bumps in Utah and work extremely well on groomers at Killington. They do all I ask them to do bases on my current abilities. Great price and friendly service from Evo.com was the icing on the cake.

                            Comments about Dynastar Contact Cross Skis + PX 12 Fluid Bindings 2011:

                            These are the first skis I have purchased, having previously relied on rentals. I purchased them on account of them having my desired length, the other reviews posted here and the price. I got 172cm length.

                            I used them today for the first time at Crystal Mountain, WA and I am really happy. They're great turners and fairly light. Great on groomed runs and steeper, ungroomed ones. I was happy they handled quite well at speed and once I picked up the pace, I think they helped me improve my abilities a little.

                            They are not the kind of ski that will float well in deeper, powder snow, but I didn't expect them to. I did get stuck once in deeper patch.

                            Bottom Line: If you're looking for a first pair of skis for beginner-intermediate, I'd highly recommend these.

                            I'd describe myself as an intermediate skier (no problem on blues, can get down a gentle black).

                              Great all mountain ski. Gets on edge and carves turns easily. Fun in the bumps too--responsive and easy to move around. Skied in the north east on packed powder/some thin cover and no chatter at higher speeds. Dynastar made another quality ski!

                              These skiis perform best at speed. Turn initiation might be a challange for less advanced or light skiiers but when these things bite they turn and turn hard! Fun as hell

                              I am an intermediate skier that received these skis as a gift. They are the first pair I have owned. They worked great for me skiing all over the mountain. They had a smooth ride and initiated turns well.

                                Great Ski for a great price! Extremely cheap for what you actually get out of the ski. Great carving ski. I race in high school and used them for both slalom and giant slalom and they worked for both of them very well.

                                  The bindings just slide right on and lock in real easy. The skis are a bit heavy but they are real smooth when skiing. Bottom line, best skis I've owned.

                                    I just got these last month. I used them at Boyne Mountain. I loved them. They seemed to carve effortlessly. I'd recommend them to anyone!

                                          Good looking skis, but probably plain by today's standards of very busy graphics. Very solid skis good at speed. A tremendous value for the money.

                                            These skis are great for this year's Northern New England conditions - little natural snow and lots of hard pack (read icy). These skis well exceeded my expectations, particularly when the trails get "skied off" and we're on the hard scratchy surfaces in the afternoon. The stability and grip are superb.

                                              This ski is extremely versatile and is a terrific value for the eastern skier, who encounters both soft as well as frozen surfaces. For the skier that only owns one pair of skis, this is the one.

                                                I'm quite happy with this purchase, the integrated Look bindings make adjustments very easy. These skis love to go fast and are quite stable through turns. This is the first pair I've purchased - everything else were rentals but they handle much, much better than anything I've rented before.

                                                  great into turns and loads up nice and releases u out of the turn. i ski in the east, good transfer from ice to corn snow.
