Dynastar Speed Elite reviews 2019
PROSKILAB™ reviewers' comments
The Speed Elite from Dynastar got this year's "Best ski 2019" award for this category.
The ski is clearly designed for performance and its short radius (13m) makes it hard to hide its slalom origins. It's great in all areas, including at high speed. Turn initiation is incisive, with rapid edge to edge, great stability in turns and fantastic punch at the end of turns, making it a very energetic model that will give a lot of pleasure.
The ski is not excessively demanding. Its overall behaviour is very consistent and reassuring and experienced riders will get the hang of it very fast.
The ski needs to be driven however, with well-dosed pressure (especially at the end of turns where the rebound may be destabilising) and it needs a little engagement. It's perfect for riders that already master carved turns well. Very adaptable, it can help riders move on to more technical turns.
The Speed Elite is an excellent ski for sporty riders looking for a very dynamic ski but that's not as demanding as a competition ski.
- Good overall performance
- Stable and reassuring
- Lively and dynamic
- Great rebound on turn exit
- An adaptable ski, will help riders to make good progress
- Requires some technical know-how
