Dynastar Pro XXL (2008)
Tops in Crud, tops in Stability at Speed. You get the picture. The returning XXL is a mountain-crusher, as straight and burly as they come. That's hardly surprising given its pedigree. The XXL is what the Dynastar race-room guys in Sallanches are making (by hand) when they're not laying up GS and super G skis for World Cup athletes. Two sheets of metal, wood core ... the only concession to liveliness or forgiveness is a strip of foam milled into the core. Testers warn it's a beast, but a fun one. "For all its beefiness, it's surprisingly versatile," said Couperthwait.
Crushing huge lines at speed.
Quick turns or a relaxed attack.
