Description

A big twin for big days.

The Dynastar 6th Sense Huge is about as close as a traditional ski can get to rocker without actually losing any effective edge. It’s huge and stiff like the name implies, but also playful thanks to the almost totally flat camber that lets you pivot quickly in tight spots. A twinned-up tail and hefty 115mm waist make it Dynastar’s biggest “freestyle” ski, but when you open it up in a field of crud or drop it switch off a cliff, you’ll see why this wood-cored, traditionally-constructed plank doesn’t really need the park.

Soooooo much fun

This ski has a long edge if you need to get around the mountain fast to that next gate opening before the hoards arrive, and soft flexing tip and tail to have lots of slarving fun in soft snow.

I have heard good things about this skis ability to be fast and stiff, but still retain its playfullness. Whats another ski that has the same characteristics, but in a smaller size? (somewhere around 105)

Best Answer Responded on

4frnt VCT Turbo's are 100, Rossignol Phantom SC are 108 and Head Supermojo's are 105. All good, reputable skis in the Big mountain freeride category.

Crud killers

I was lucky enough to demo some of these on a good spring powder day. This was actually the first time I was able to ski some fat skis in the powder and I was honestly blown away. Nothing compares to fat skis in fresh powder.
After a few runs I got used to the fact that you can ski through the crud like it was groomed. At first I was tense through the cruddy steeps like I am on my normal skis, but once I got used to them I relaxed and sped up considerably. I like to make long fast GS turns down pretty much everything and these excelled in cutting through the bumps allowing me to go as fast as I wanted.

I wasn't able to hit any groomed trails but I did ski through some packed down snow and I wasn't super impressed. For me they handled OK on the packed snow, about as well as I was expecting. I don't think they are really made for carving up corduroy though so it's not a deal breaker.

How will these skis work on groomer, soft snow,
crud?

Responded on

These skis are awesome in just about every condition. Since they are fairly traditionally cut, they really hold an edge well on the hard pack, and I find that I can be really aggresive on them no matter what the snow conditions, and they really rip through the crud well too. Obivously since they are pretty wide you have to roll over a little more to change edges, but they are a great all around ski if you want something fat.

is the 2010 6th sense huge different from the 2009 6th sense huge (trouble)? I've been told no and I can get a 2009 cheaper but I read that they have different camber. Anyone know if the differences are just cosmetic or more?

How would the 6th sense huge compare to the legend pro xxl? I how the huge is more big mountain/freestyle oriented but I don't want to give up any of the stability of the xxl. Also, I noticed the huge doesn't have any metal in it. How will that affect it's performance at high speeds?

This ski is definitely NOT zero camber. I thought this was the Huge Trouble with a different graphic, but when I looked at a pair next to a pair of Huge Trouble's I noticed much more camber in the 6th sense.

Responded on

Not sure what you saw, but my pair of 6th Sense Huge have very little camber — exactly what I expected from the manufacturer description.

Responded on

If you strand up a pair of these base to base, you will see about 3/4" gap between them. However, this small amount of camber is very soft and requires almost no weight or power to flatten it out, effectively no camber when you are skiing them. although skis are hand matched to create pairs with the same camber in each set, from pair to pair some variation in camber exists. thus people seem to detect pairs having flat camber or slight camber. I ski this ski on powder days.

Review Title

Zero camber is the way to go. It floats as well as a reverse camber ski but still keeps the ability to charge in crud and variable snow. As soon as you put any weight on a zero camber ski in powder it becomes effectively reverse camber. This ski is stiff enough to open it up and charge without it flopping around on you but is still forgiving and fun to smear turns in the trees. Simply put, this is a fun, no compromise, ski everything powder ski.

6th sense Huge

These skis are a blast in the powder. On the groom they have a very slide-like feeling that is to be expected from a flat camber ski. That flat camber is what makes pow fun. They can slide, pivot, slash, and surf like a rockered ski, without loosing stability.

Is this the same ski as the Huge Trouble????? Or did Dynastar switch it up?

Responded on

As far as the construction goes I am not sure whether or not they are different. As for the dimensions, the only difference is that that this ski is 140 in the tip and the Huge trouble is 145 in the tip. The waist width of 115 and tail width of 130 are the same.

Responded on

It is the same ski, just with different graphics. The 140-115-130 dimentions remain unchanged from last year.

How would this ski do with a Tyrolia RFD 14 bindng

Best Answer Responded on

Not sure if it's a good idea. FFD is good binding for normal skis. It has huge plate and toe/hill is to high from snow (around 30mm). That's to high for big mountain skis. I'll chose something else

Responded on

I have RF bindings on my Huge Troubles. They work great...not too high at all.. llve that you can adjust fore and aft position to suit the conditions. Also like that I only have to bring one set of bindings on a trip and can switch between the Huge and my Elan 888's. If you are a good skier, it won't matter much at all to be a little higher, and it makes the ski very versatile so you can use it even when you aren't in deep snow or off-piste and have it work very well. If you intend it to be a pure powder ski, perhaps a lower binding would be fine.

yup. stoked

I would have to agree with Mr. Roner here. . . the ski does rule and does work for all conditions... From the alps to the great utah deep stuff-pow-pow to AK spring snow ... and then groomer/jump runs in the corn--- it's a great ski.

Is this identical to the '09 Huge Trouble?...

Posted on

Is this identical to the '09 Huge Trouble? If it's the same ski, I'm curious if the manufacturer recommended mounting position has changed from '09. The internet wisdom for the Huge Trouble was to mount about 2.5cm back from the manufacturer line.

Nice Erik! question for ya...where exactly did you place your boot center mark on your ski when you mounted it. Just picked up a couple pair and want to get it right. I have a 27.5 317mm Lange. Will take em to the shop, but would love the exact number of inches measured from the tip or tail if possible. Thanks for any help.
