In designing the Free 97, Dynafit set out to create a balanced ski that isn’t too laborious on the up yet has the confidence to excel no matter the snow conditions. To achieve this, they started with a poplar wood core lined with carbon fiber stringers, which helps to provide a damp yet playful ride. They added more tip and tail rocker compared to their Beast series. This simultaneously increases maneuverability for those tight spaces as well as helps with float when it's nuking powder. All of this was done with you, the backcountry skier, in mind and a desire to elevate your ski experience every time you step onto these planks. As a "Thank You" we should probably all buy a set of these fun, damp, and ready-for-action Dynafit Free 97 skis. Just sayin'.
- Rocker profile in both the tip and tail lends itself to flotation and turn initiation to keep you happy with face shots or fresh corn.
- Full ABS sidewall construction helps increases durability and power transfer so you can rip around shark teeth with confidence.
- Poplar Wood core and carbon stringers provide a lively yet smooth ride down that sweet, sweet ski line.
