2013 Dynastar Speed Course TI

Posted

Pros: Versatile, Stable, & Forgiving

Cons: Size matters. Shorter sizes = shorter turns. Longer sizes = longer turns.

 

The Dynastar Speed Course Ti is a great tool for advanced and expert skiers looking for a high performance hard snow ski with just enough versatility to handle variable snow conditions. Those considering this ski should select the size carefully. When testing this ski the 170cm length preferred a turn size (15m) shorter than I desired while the 177cm delivered the longer turn size I was looking for. The taper of the ski and the shape of the tail in particular increase this skis versatility greatly and allow those will the skills required to finely adjust turn shape as needed. Its longitudinal flex is slightly softer than most of the skis of this type making it surprisingly good in bumps and yet its torsional rigidity is high and holds well on the hardest snow. It looks like a race ski and it holds on hard snow like a race ski but it’s a far more versatile tool and is capable of taking advanced and expert skiers wherever they want to go.

Pros: Great edge to edge power

Cons: Sinks on powder, well duhhh.

 

Review:

I stumbled upon the Course Ti a few years back at the Stratton Demo Days. I had finished testing all theat I needed to test and had a couple of runs to kill so I took out the Course Ti. Hmmm. Race graphics, but a rounded tail? Was this going to be a sheep in wolves clothing? After just two turns I was pleasently surprised that we have an actual wolf..yee HAH..each turn got progressively faster and smoother, while it wasn't as quick as a slaloms ski and it wasn't as fast as a GS ski...it fit right in the middle and was just a ton of fun. Each year I will get on the Course Ti for a couple of days and ask myself why I don't own a pair, they are just a hoot to ski.
