We caught up with Jamie Starr of Dynafit (which is hard to do with skis under his feet 🙂 ) at this year’s SIA show to check out the 2018 Dynafit Beast 108. Below is a short video with Jamie, prior to skiing a lap with this ripping and very knowledgeable skier.
“The Beast 108 free touring ski is made just for powder specialists. Developers have focused on downhill performance: Full ABS sidewalls and the ash wood core ensure edge grip and stability plus torsional rigidity. Nevertheless, this ski at 1,750 grams (size 181) performs well as a touring ski for middle-distance and long climbs. To achieve this, developers put their focus on weight reduction while not decreasing ski performance — for example, with the use of premium materials and the reduction of top sheets. This ski has Double Ellipse Rocker construction. Its construction works with variable edge lengths — depending on the ski’s edge angle — and ensures optimum control and maneuverability in the backcountry. In addition, the “Ride Tip” — a carbon core in the shovel — optimizes vibration and damping properties.” – Dynafit.
