The Mythic 97 Ski is a feathery light option from Dynastar, and it feels great on the uphill as well as the downhill. With a lightweight wood core, a carbon fiber laminate, and a versatile 97mm waist width, the Mythic will keep you powering up the ascent with enough leg strength left over to help yourself to a few more laps.
Weighing just over six pounds per pair, the Mythics are the lightest offering from Dynastar to date. This is achieved through a lightweight paulownia wood core sandwiched between two layers of carbon fiber. An ultralight top sheet and a lightweight base material make them only that much lighter. Never one to sacrifice downhill performance, Dynastar built the the Mythic to ski like, well, a Dynastar. The ski's rockered profile has a playful feel in the fluff, but will hold an edge when you're linking turns down steep couloirs and wide-open alpine zones. Full-length sidewalls add to the stable nature when you're picking up speed, while the progressive five-point sidecut offers plenty of float when you luck out with a bit of fluff up in the alpine.
