Product Info

The Dynastar Distorter Skis are all about skiing untracked faces in the morning, hitting the park after lunch and finishing the day off by snaking past gapers while racing your buddies down the groomers. About as versatile as a ski can get, the Distorters have a Twin Rocker that provides float in pow while the underfoot camber holds an edge extremely well on hardpack. Add Spring Blade technology to the skis and these beasts pop like none other for easy jibbing and spin initiation in the park. If you're looking for a true do-it-all quiver killer, look no further than the Distorter skis from Dynastar

Product Details

Rocker Type

Twin RockerLong, progressive rockers in the tip and tail, with a more radical height. The load-bearing length is reduced to a minimum, giving the twin-tips exceptional pivot. The tip and tail of the skis are freed, so they pivot effortlessly in all types of snow. Flotation is easier, and even possible in switch. Ideal for powder skiing, especially in wooded terrain. Once back on the piste, the ski's natural camber and progressive rocker guarantee excellent All Mountain performance.

Flex

Spring BladeSpring 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.

Core

Wood Core

Laminates

Wood Fiber Core ConstructionTraditional 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.

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Comments about Dynastar Distorter Skis 2014:

I have only gone out a couple times on these skis, but they have been great for me so far. I have been very comfortable taking runs through the jumps in the terrain park. I have been out on some powder as well, and these skis float quite nicely, and are pretty easy to handle. I bought it because of the price, and have gotten every penny out of it so far.

      Awesome price for these skis. I am enjoying them so far. We never have powder in Ohio, so I can't comment on how well they float. I've used them twice so far and the top sheet already has a fair amount of nicks and scratches, but that might be a result of me using them in the park.

        I love the feel of these skis, very lightweight; ski well in all conditions including terrain parks, powder, advanced level slopes etc... Slightly disappointed in the plastic covering as it is already peeled back quit a bit and I've only skied three days on them...

          Comments about Dynastar Distorter Skis 2014:

          I bought these as I was on a budget having just had a child. They are very good skis, but for the price I paid they are phenomenal skis.

          Smooth and early through the turn. Stable at high speed. Equally they are very manageable at low speed and tight quarters. I've used them front side only and on the shoulders and no complaints. I don't think they'll be great in deep powder because they're not particularly wide (especially at the waist).

          If I'd paid full price for these I would have been happy but at the amazing price that Evo have them at the are the deal of the century.

            Comments about Dynastar Distorter Skis 2014:

            Bought these because of the price and the size to be my early/late season mess around skis and couldn't be happier with their performance. The rockered tips and tails make bad snow days better with easier spins butters, ollies, whatever and even with the relative skinniness of these they do extremely well in new snow up to about 8 inches

            Service and delivery comments:

            Evo is great my skis arrived in 5 days over the thanksgiving holiday and you can't beat the no questions return policy. Sometimes you don't like what you get when you see it, thank you evo for honoring that.

              Bought these to be my early/late season rock/ice/stump/crud/gross skis when I can't get enough snow for my midseason boards and they did nothing but impress me. I don't know how many evo has left in stock but at that price it's rude not to get these. Great all mountain twin, even performs better than I thought in powder sections for a ski at this width. They edge like a race ski and the rocker lets you be as playful as you like. Overall good buy. Nothing too high tech, nothing groundbreaking but a good ski at a great price by a great manufacturer.
