Dynastar Legend 85 Fluid Skis + PX 12 Fluid Bindings 2012

Dynastar Legend 85 Fluid Skis + PX 12 Fluid Bindings 2012: Dynastar's Legend series skis have been a dominant presence in big mountain skiing for close to a decade. The Dynastar Legend 85 Fluid Skis combine the power and stability inherent to the Legend series with a quick and versatile feel, creating a ski equally comfortable ripping trees, bumps, groomers and backside pow shots. The 3D Wood Core construction, two layers of titanal and full-length vertical sidewalls provide a stable and powerful feel. The slow-rise Freeride Rockered forebody lends float, maneuverability and easy turn initiation allowing the ski to shine in a variety terrain and snow conditions. Traditional camber underfoot provides power, energy and confident edge grip for strong turns on firmer snow and hardpack. The Legend 85 is a legitimate and complete all-mountain ski that offers high performance skiers the confident versatility to attack every aspect of the mountain.
Shape
All Snow Rocker has a fairly long rocker, progressive only in the tip, for improved terrain absorption and impeccable flotation in powder. Ski pivoting is facilitated, making forward/rearward balance easier and reducing muscular fatigue when off-piste. The flat tail enables skiers to maintain the heel power crucial for high-speed freeriding and off-piste jump landings.
Construction
Traditional sandwich technology of Wood and Titanal layers guarantees precise carving stability and excellent torsion rigidity. The power is provided by two layers of fiberglass whose basic weight (thickness) can vary depending on the model and the desired ski-ability. The double Melamine/Phenol sidewalls ensures flexibility and power according to the skier's needs in the different phases of the turn.
The new Fluid X Plate is lighter than the aluminium version and offers higher performance than the composite version for 25% less lateral deformation and 50% less vertical deformation.
Bindings
The Look PX 12 Fluid Bindings are made for expert skiers looking to achieve maximum precision and performance in complete safety.
DIN range: 3.5-12
Included Bindings
Bindings do not come mounted to the skis. Always have a certified technician mount and adjust the bindings.
Core and Flex Pattern
The 3D Wood Core is hollowed out in the center where the stress is less intense and reinforced on the ski exterior, improving power transmission to the edges. The ski is therefore lighter, not only enhancing ski-ability but also improving performance and control. The Titanal top sheet is cut out to respect the shape of the core to provide light weight, grip, and ski-snow contact.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain skis are designed to handle anything you throw at them including powder, ice, groomers, steeps, heavy snow, and everything in between, but they aren’t necessarily a master of any one terrain. If you’re only going to own one ski to do it all, this is what you want. All-mountain skis generally have what we call mid-fat waists that range from 80-110 mm.
  • Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber
    Rocker/Camber
    Rocker/Camber skis pair a traditional cambered profile underfoot with an elongated, early rise tip borrowed from fully rockered skis. This profile places the front contact point further back from the tip, while the rear contact point remains close to the tail. The rockered tip allows for better flotation and less edge catch for increased float in deep snow, while the cambered rear stores and transmits energy similarly to a fully cambered ski.
  • Turning Radius: Short
  • Core/Laminates: Metal, Wood
  • Tail Type: Partial Twin Tip
    Partial Twin Tip
    Partial twin tip skis have a tail that is turned up, but not as much as the tip. This gives you the ability to ski backwards and back out of tight spaces, but these skis are mainly designed to ski forward.
  • Warranty: 1 year ski, 5 years bindings
