Live the legend.
There are many factors that play into a solid day on the slopes, and a bomber pair of planks on your feet is high up on that list. The Dynastar Legend X106 Ski is a mid-fat ripper that will have you slashing, carving, and everything in between. Float turns through powdery faces with the 106mm waist and rockered tip and tail, then flip it around and rail hardpack and chopped up crud in the afternoon when everything's tracked out.
Dynastar used a light paulownia wood core to give this ski a playful and poppy feeling, while Titanal layers reduce chatter and maintain torsional rigidity while you're clocking high speeds though chunder. Full sidewalls let you lay it down GS-style on firm steep slopes, and the short turn radius makes these sticks nimble enough to navigate tight trees in search of hidden stashes.

- Q & A
A True Legend!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Towards the end of last season I had the opportunity to ski 9 different skis over the course of a full day. Conditions were icy hardpack on the groomers with corn to be found in the sun off-piste. I'm 5'9 weight 175lbs and skied the 182cm length ski.
The new Legend 106 skis absolutely blew me away! It was hands down my favorite all-around ski of the day. I have always been a fan of the Dynastar Cham and this was my first chance to ski the new carboned-up iteration of one of my favorite skis. I was scared I was going to hate the ski as today's trend of adding carbon and lightening up skis has made many skis too harsh and challenging to control through chop at higher speeds in my opinion. My fears were completely unwarranted! For as light as it is, it still manages to plow through chop as well almost as my old full metal top sheet Blizzard Cochise that weigh significantly more. The Legend carves better than any 106 ski has a right to and the tail hung on incredibly well when pushing hard on icy groomers. Off-piste they plowed through icy crud better than any other ski aside from the Nordica Enforcer that I tried on the demo day. It's amazing how a ski that is 2lbs lighter than the Enforcer yet can come ever so close to matching it in the chop. They carved better than any mid-fat ski in its class. This is a remarkably damp ski that is quite stiff, particularly in the tail. It is genuine fun in all conditions and will serve you well in everything from blower pow (the shovel tips are softer than the rest of the ski to rise you on top of soft snow) to icy hard pack. It is a more poppy ski than previous Chams, yet still retains the ability to charge. Can you tell I didn't want to give this ski back? It kept a smile on my face lap after lap. Dynastar knocked it our of the park with this one!--Update. I bought a pair and after skiing poweder...I'm in love
