Dynastar Contact Limited Edition w/Autodrive 172 cm

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
2006 Dynastar Contact Limited Edtion 172cm skis with
Look PX 12 ti Autodrive Fluid Bindings

$499 + actual cost of shipping. Will not ship outside the US.

I bought these skis new in Canada late last Spring and used them for one day at A-Basin. Top sheets ahve a few minor scruffs. One scratch on one bottom sheet that I will fill before shipping. No dings on edges. Basically new skis. This ski is the only one Dynastar sold last year with this year's Autodrive binding set-up. No need to remount bindings -- just adjust to fit your boots. This is a very fast and lively ski designed for front-side conditions. MSRP of $1,250.00; I paid over $700 US in May, 2006.

Call me at (303) 823-6560 or e-mail me at tomandlorawoods@msn.com if you are interested. I am located in Colorado at zip code 80540 if you need to calculate shipping costs. I can ship via UPS or FedEx.

The Contact Limited is equipped with Autodrive Fluid: an integrated ski-binding system, the latest Dynastar / Look innovation for a true fusion between a skier and his/her skis.

Rider Profile
This series is intended for advanced on-piste skiers. The Contact series offers fantastic groomed run turning performance, while the 71mm waist is wide enough to plow through crud and loose snow too. The Limited Edition model is stiff enough to ensure solid edge hold at high speeds, while not being uncomfortably “race ski” stiff.

The Autodrive Fluid system optimises each phase of a turn (more force, more propulsion...) and above all else, it ensures a better connection, a true link between the different parts of the ski’s mechanization (tip / waist / tail) and between the different phases of a turn (entry/drive/exit).

What is the construction? [ie: Any layers of titanium, Laminate or cap construction, etc.].
Also, how does it relate to this years Contact 9,10,11?
Was this a precursor ski?

I am not sure, but I believe the Exclusive Limited is a hot-rod version of the Contact 11. It's really more of a GS race ski than anything else. They like to go fast, and are very stable at speed, but are nevertheless surprisingly agile. I found the review below, which you might find helpful. Very few pairs of these skis were made and sold, even in Europe. I believe (but am not sure) they have a titanium sheet throughout.

Dynastar 2007 Preview

Written by Dan Morgan Wednesday, 18 January 2006 Dynastar and Look seem set to deliver an integrated binding system for the 2007/2007 season. Dubbed "Fluid", the system operates much like many other existing integrated binding sets already on the market. A rail runs the underneath the length of the binding to which allows the ski to flex with the binding and store/release energy through the stages of the turn, including increased rebound on exit. The fluid system integrates with Dynastar longstanding Autodrive system.

Fluid seems set to enhance Dynastar's demo offering - being a tool-free system enabling binding mount and adjust in less than 30 seconds.
The sports performance Dynastar Contact range seems set for a fairly high profile overhaul. Nothing is left untouched, with more defined sidecuts and wider waists for bigger footprints along with the new Fluid binding system. The Dynastar Contact series is aimed at intermediate and above skiers who stick to groomed runs.

The Contact is already tied into the new Fluid binding system, as Dynastar released a limited edition Contact Limited model for the current 2005/2006 season, featuring the Fluid Autodrive system.
