Dynastar builds all of their women's skis specifically for the anatomy and skiing style of females. The stance and sidecut are moved forward for better control, and the heel is raised slightly for better balance. A women's frontside ski, the Elite is designed for aggressive on-trail skiers. It's built like the Dynastar Speed Cross, which means it has World Cup race ski construction with a flex and turn radius more suited for female recreational skiers. Advanced and expert females looking for a carving ski should investigate the Elite.
