I've been searching long and hard for a replacement for my '09 Dynastar Legend Pro Rider. I think I've found it. This ski skis great in powder, yet busts through crud and handles surprisingly well on hard pack. It gets a bit dicey on ice, but manages well especially since its not made for those conditions. I'm impressed by how light they are with Diamir Fritschi Pro Freeride bindings. Skinning is a breeze and my hip flexors are thanking me. If there really is such a thing as a one ski quiver, this ski comes as close to the mark as any I have seen. Great job BD!
