Dynastar Speed Zone 12 Ti (Konect) 2019

Reviewed by PROSKILAB

PROSKILAB™ reviewers comments

Dazzling holder of a PROSKILAB "Best ski" award last year and scoring very well in many other reviews, the Speed Zone 12 Ti remains well placed in this selection of the best skis on the market. However, it lost a few places on the scoreboard, probably due to the arrival of new competitors, softer snow conditions and slight changes to the ski's structure (the Active Air Core wood core is lighter).

The ski has excellent qualities overall. It's very well-balanced and offers good performance and comfort overall. Its character is consistent and it's extremely reassuring.

The ski is globally efficient and enjoyable. However, the reviewers felt that its behaviour was less intuitive than last year and while it's very comfortable in its carving radius, it appears to find it difficult to adapt to other types of ride and needs careful positioning.

The Speed Zone 12 Ti is now a benchmark in this programme and we recommend it for good to very good riders looking for an easy carving ski.

Review: Pros

  • Accessible
  • Versatile
  • Good carving performance
  • Grippy

Review: Cons

  • Finds it difficult to move away from its radius
  • Skid turns fall short
  • Needs good positioning

Manufacturer's remarks

As powerful and precise as a race ski, with comfort and agility as a bonus. The Dynastar SPEED ZONE 12 Ti alpine ski gives you all the comfort and control of the Powerdrive Piste technology developed by our race-room. As efficient in tight turns as in Giant Slalom rides, riders will meet all the challenges the piste can throw at them on an astonishingly light and lively ski thanks to its new Active Air Core (17% lighter). A truly elegant ski.

SpeedZone 12 Ti

Look: Very nice old-school design with a mix of modern carbon-based racecar design. Experience: The ski is very lively, and built to carve shorter turns. It is stable mainly for lower to medium speed and at higher speeds the Racetiger SC is much more stable. Generally it is a well-balanced ski that is missing a real personality.
