Testers' Ratings

The Dynastar Speed Zone 12 Ti, with its Powerdrive technology based on a vertical profile of viscoelastic material, titanal and ABS, has been confirmed for the 2019/2020 season. This ski is aimed at a Class-3 skier. It offers everything that a good skier could ask for: "it is very light and stable, playful and manoeuvrable on soft snow," says Giovanni Manfrini. His colleague Giordano Magri defines its scope of use: "on easy pistes, it's a nice toy, it doesn't disappoint when trying to push it to the limits of the angle," while on "more steep pistes, it becomes more difficult to manage because it vibrates a lot," concludes the instructor. You can make the most of this ski in medium or large turns, where, according to Alex Favaro, "it never takes too much physical effort". It remains "always easy and intuitive with a good entry into curves" for Riccardo Giacomel; but what rewards it is its natural manoeuvrability: indeed, it got the highest score in our review, just behind its comfort of management. Its flaws are limited to its insufficient precision and its loss of grip at high speed (Riccardo Giacomel). It also has difficulty mastering short radii (Stefano Belingheri). It is obvious that the profile corresponds to what is stated and that it presents itself as a ski for every day, the whole day, for a skier who doesn't wait for the lifts to open at eight o'clock in the morning but who takes advantage of the entire day and needs a product that gives them confidence and is "very easy to pivot and control" (Riccardo Nardelli).
