Revamps abound with most manufactures and Dynastar is no different. Out with the popular Legend and Legend Pro series,and replace with the updated Outland and revolutionary, yeah I said it, Cham series. First the Outlands, while I haven't had a chance to view all of them yet, I did get to fondle the Outland 87. With the 132/87/114 dimensions in the 178 it sounds pretty straight forward but this numbers tend not to equate to a 19M TR...With the Outlands early rise tip and tail and a unique tip profile, I will be reporting within a few days on how this new addition to the upper 80's frontside ski reacts on snow and how it compares to the other skis in the "Crazy 88" class.
The Cham series will range from an 87mm wide big mountain ski and will add four additional models above it on the 10's at 97mm, 107mm,117mm and 127mm. But for preview here, we will focus on the 107mm...since that was all I saw. Forget your preconceived memories of the current (and past) Legend skis, these Chams are Cham WOW different. With the Early rise in the tip being much more progressive and shapely than previous Legends and the pin tails (along with traditional camber underfoot) these will ski dramatically different than previous Dynastars but am told that they were able to keep that Dynastar feel. How did they do it? Not sure but I am looking forward to seeing what they did. Needless to say, SierraJim and I are real excited to finding out...Spoiler could these be the next virtual monitors for 2013? Only time will tell.
The Look Pivots (both 14 and 18 DIN) return with a new green complexion and will also be available with a 132mm brake (18 DIN only).
