The returning Elite Light is a high-performance hard-snow carver for skilled technicians who know how to bend a ski and aren't shy about speed. Its narrow waist (72 mm) and full-sidewall, wood-core laminate construction give it quickness, integrity and edge grip. Its 15-meter radius favor tight turns and high edge angles. And full camber delivers tip-to-tail edge grip and strong rebound across the hill into the new turn. It's the only Dynastar women's model with a poplar core - which is denser and damper than paulownia wood used in other models - for optimal power and high-speed calm.
