Product Info

Dynastar Legend 85 Skis 2012: Dynastar's Legend series skis have been a dominant presence in big mountain skiing for close to a decade. The Dynastar Legend 85 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.

Product Details

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 skiability. The double Melamine/Phenol sidewall 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.

Flex

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 skiability 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.

      Comments about Dynastar Legend 85 Skis 2012:

      I wasn't even shopping for new skis but the Dynastar's were just too sweet to pass up. Early rise rocker tip, lots of camber and a nice stiff tail these skis are going to tear it up!

      I have a pair of older Sultan's that are ready to retire, I can't wait to strap these on and see what the early rise tips do to change the ride.
