Dynastar Cham 97 Skis 2015

Dynastar Shop all Dynastar
From tram laps to big mountain competitions, the Dynastar Cham 97 Skis are Chamonix tried and tested- and boy do they pass the test. Receiving 'Gear of the Year' award by Outside magazine and Ski Magazine's 'Gold Medal Gear' award, it is no secret that the Cham 97's are what legends are made of. Delivering high-performance freeride versatility that excels in the most challenging terrain, it offers an aggressive side cut coupled with titanal sandwich construction allowing the ski to be extremely maneuverable while retaining stability at speeds. The wide tip enhances float and the flat pin tail maximizes control and precise steer-ability in deep snow. Whether your objective is a technical line through variable snow or a spring day in the resort, the Dynastar Cham 97 will take care of business.
Rocker Type
Tip Rocker - Moderate rocker at the tip only. For easier pivoting on flat skis with a smooth and forgiving feel in the turns. The rise is designed so that once the ski is on its edge, the ski works in the turn providing full-length edge contact.
Levitation Profile - The combination of a 5 point sidecut, extra long tip rocker, traditional camber underfoot and narrower pin-tail produces the reliability and versatility that are essential in freeride.
Wood Titanal - Traditional sandwich technology with wood core and two titanal layers that provide excellent stability in carving and greatly reduce torsional effects. The power is provided by two layers of fibreglass whose basic weight varies depending on the model and the desired skiability. The double melamine/phenol sidewalls ensure flexibility and power according to the skier's needs in the different phases of the turn.
Sandwich Construction - Sandwich construction with full-length straight sidewalls, for maximum precision and performance.

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Big 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.
    Big Mountain
    Big mountain skis are designed for charging big lines with high speeds and big airs. These skis varry in width from wide, powder-oriented skis for skiing Alaska spines to narrower, mixed condition skis for ripping the beat up headwall at your local mountain. Skis in this category tend to be on the stiffer side, often with more rocker in the tip and less in the tail.
  • Ability Level: Advanced-Expert
    Whether you charge the steepest lines, carve with race-like precision, hit the biggest jumps or halfpipes; advanced to expert level skis/snowboards are for the more aggressive rider. You will often find the addition of layers of metal, carbon, bamboo, or other stringers in these. These features work to make a stiffer ski/snowboard with more power and rebound.
  • Rocker Type: 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
    < 16 m radius is best for carving.
  • Core/Laminates: Metal, Wood
  • Tail Type: Flat
    This is your traditional tail, designed to have edge contact all the way through the tail, and only designed for skiing forward. This is also preferred for alpine touring, as you can stick the tails of your skis in the snow.
  • Ski Awards: Outside Magazine Gear of the Year, Ski Magazine Gold Medal Gear
  • Warranty: 1 Year
