2009 Dynastar Legend Pro XXL Ski Reviews

piste skiing bliss and off-piste bliss

Posted

Pros: Powder bliss, nice float, fast, straight, fast.

Cons: fast, you'll see the world in a blur., Weak in the legs, go somewhere else for your giggles., this will fry the quads on most.

Saying that this ski offers some of the best of both worlds is an understatement.   Off piste, this ski rocks, from blower to cold smoke, you'll find confidence with each turn, you can be as agressive as you want and the ski will keep it coming.   The float is amazing and the late afternoon baked sun crust won't offer any issues.   On piste, it is a very fast ski (as it is off piste), but the feedback from the groomers won't hinder forward progression.  It skis very flat, with no high speed wobble NO chatter, NO harshness.  What you'll be trying to do , is find its terminal velocity (which you won't find), SO go as fast as you want, it will reward you with many smiles.

The tips stay up even if the skier gets a little forward or if the piles of pushed-up snow are knee deep. I was...

187 XXL - A Cadillac Charger

Posted

Pros: Damp, smooth and confidence inspiring

Cons: heavy

 For Off piste variable snow there is nothing better. Blows trough crud and cut up like its untouched. They made me a better, more confident skier because they are so well balanced. I loaned them to my buddy for a half a day....he bought the last pair in girdwood that night. A perfect big mountain resort ski for the agressive skier that likes to ski steep, challenging off trail terrain.
