Dropping! The Beast 108 is an incredible freeride weapon for those who skin to send it. Full double elliptical rocker and the 108mm waist keep the ski nimble in the trees or while pillow popping. If you haven't skied a full rocker ski in deep powder, you're missing out on the most playful form of skiing out there. Dynafit has the pure rocker shape dialed with a double ellipse rocker that is mostly flat under the foot and progressively increases towards the ends of the ski. This gives you more skin contact on the up and more power and edge contact in the center of the ski on the way down in less than-blower-conditions.
The Ash/Poplar core, and full ABS sidewall allow you to open it up in wide open steep faces and stomp the cliff band with confidence. This construction is downhill performance first, saving weight a close second. While ideally we would all be skiing perfect deep pow with zero wind-effect, the reality is that there are always blown out entries to lines or chunder in the crux to deal with when you'll want the denser wood and full dampening sidewall.
The Beast 108 has same profile as the Chugach from the past two seasons, which is an incredible downhill freeride ski. The only knock with the Chugach was the nearly 2,000g weight penalty while pushing up towards your line. Dynafit claims they shaved an impressive 250 grams per ski while using the same charging shape, Ash core, and sidewall construction. We weighed it at 280 grams lighter! We're stoked to mount up a pair of these and press send!
