Mythic Rider Width QuestionI thought I would post an update to the thread about the width on the Mythic Rider skis. I had some back and forth correspondence with the Dynastar/Lange U.S. Product Manager and he was able to clarify. He spoke to the engineers in France that worked on the Mythic Rider. Apparently, in the 172 length, the published dimensions of the Mythic Rider (122-88-110) fall into the range of a prior patent. In order to get around this, they considered a number of options but settled on the 90mm waist as they felt it skied most consistently with the design parameters for the Mythic Rider. All of the 172cm Mythic Rider skis, therefore, are 90mm at the waist by design. The reference length used for the dimensions in all of their published material is 178cm. The lengths at 178cm or greater all have the 88mm waist width.
Just an aside, I was pretty impressed with the consistent responsiveness of the U.S. Product Manager. His communication was quick, complete and very helpful. Score one for Dynastar.
