Dynastar Speed Zone 16 Ti reviews 2018

PROSKILAB™ reviewers' comments

Reviewed this year without its R21 racing plate (which it had last year), the Speedzone 16 Ti from Dynastar, like the Rossignol, lost some of its performance whilst gaining in user-friendliness and comfort. The ski has nonetheless retained its slalom qualities with excellent overall performance, fantastic grip and strong character. The Speedzone 16 will bend easily and anchors turns extremely well. On the other hand, you need to put some pressure on the tongue as the tail is fairly flexible, not an issue for good riders in this category. We recommend this ski for good to expert riders who want a sporty, playful and easy to handle ski that's still incredibly versatile.

Review: Pros

  • Overall performance
  • Consistent
  • Good grip
  • Energetic
  • A flexible ski which bends easily even at low speeds
  • A ski for all turns

Review: Cons

  • Needs to be skied in a slightly forward position
  • A relatively flexible tail that won’t forgive positioning too far back
