2013 Dynastar Outland 87

100% Positive Reviews
Rated #166 in All-Mountain Skis


Pros: Playful 87 wide carver

Cons: System only..DAMMIT



As soon as the rep dropped these off for me to try I was excited to get them out. I respect a company that comes out with two completely different skis with the same waist at the same time, they "get" how skis can be so similar yet be so different. The Outland 87 is a ski that has an almost identical construction to the Rossignol Experience 88 in that it uses basalt (rock, hence the ROCK in the title) strands in the construction. Where some people felt the E88 would lock into ONE turn, I found the Outland 87 was much more relaxed and could be modulated into more more carried turn shapes and to an extent more versatile. 


My main caveat with the Outland is that it is only available as a system ski where most other skis in this category are available either in a system or flat. I would much rather put in a Pivot 14 (in the new green) than to use the overly heavy Axial2 system. I also did play with the mount point and I felt that the Oh87 skied better a couple of CM back of center.
