Dynastar 2020 ski reviews
The Proskilab reviewers came back from the Speed Master SL tests with huge smiles on their faces! It must be said that the ski offers an exceptional accessibility–performance ratio.
This year, the model was equipped with its R22 "race" plate (like its twin from Rossignol).
It only takes a few metres to notice that we are dealing with a ski with a well-tempered "slalom" personality.... Read on
After some difficult years in which the products of Rossignol/Dynastar were poorly rated by Proskilab, it is clear that the group has been able to go uphill and offer products particularly suited to certain market segments.
In these performance-oriented categories, the group's models have become essential. It should be noted that their success is due in part to the R22 "race" plate, which boosts the... Read on
The Speed Zone 12 Ti from Dynastar offers good overall performance and excellent homogeneity.
The performance is indeed there. The ski makes it possible to go fast, even very fast. The level of performance was considered excellent and the ski's behaviour is reassuring. The Speed Zone 12 Ti "goes well into curves" even if it is not as incisive as other skis. The supports are solid and curve handling... Read on
The Speed Zone 4x4 range is new from Dynastar.
Described as "All-Mountain" by the brand, it is nevertheless very piste-oriented. It corresponds more to what we at Proskilab call an "All-Round" programme, i.e. skis dedicated to the piste but with an "all-terrain, all-snow" vocation. It is available in two waist sizes (78 and 82 mm), with two different constructions: normal and "pro",... Read on
Last year's "Best Ski", the Dynastar Speed Elite has been dethroned this year by a more versatile and consistent model.
However, it does remain a top level ski and with slalom in its DNA, it will keep skiers in the forefront when it comes to performance. Turn initiation, grip and drive through the turn are all without reproach. The Speed Elite deserves its name: it's sporty, lively and "responsive".

While the Speed Zone 78 Pro from Dynastar has distinguished itself in the "accessible piste" category, its big brother in 82 mm width is a little more to the point in this category where we find a higher level of performance.
Its general behaviour is good. Its stability was particularly noted by the reviewers. On the other hand, its 82 mm underfoot gives it an advantage over soft or varied snow.
Despite... Read on
The feedback on this ski is similar to that of the Rossignol Experience 88 Ti W. Just as with the Rossignol, the Intense 4x4 82 Pro seems very close to the men's version (the Speed Zone 4x4 Pro) with similar weight and sidecut.
The testers of the men's version found it to be quite soft, but the testers of the women's model found it to be stiff and demanding for female skiers.
