The days of mounting your old bindings on your kid’s old resort skis are a thing of the past. Maybe you convinced them to go touring with you on a setup that weighs 1/3 of their body weight, and maybe they even pretended to enjoy it. But now, thanks to the Dynafit SL 80, your kids have access to a proper backcountry ski that checks all the boxes: light, durable, fun, inexpensive, and offered in appropriate lengths. The micro sidewall that runs the length of the ski is good for durability, but it plays an even larger role in reducing chatter while simultaneously increasing grip. The tip notch makes sure that your groms learn to rip skins the proper way from the beginning while also protecting the core from head-on impacts. A generous amount of tip rocker paired with the perfect waist width ensure a fine balance between climbing confidence and descending prowess. Just as capable in the resort as in the backcountry, the Dynafit SL 80 is a confidence inspiring ripper that’s ready for anything.
- Enough length options to get the perfect size or leave a little bit of space to grow into.
- Tip notch allows for easy transitions in the backcountry, resort, or Tuesday night race.
- Tip rocker, tail rocker, and a manageable flex.
- Pairs perfectly with the ST Rotation 7.

Questions & Reviews
For skins ease of use is important. The only kid's specific skin we have is the Contour, which says it has less sticky glue (I don't know if it is the Hybrid system). Also, they do not have a tail fix, which is easier to use as long as the end of skin stays clean and sticky. For older kids who may use them a lot, a tail fix may be better. As always, Skimo carries a very full line of skin material and parts to custom make what will work best for your child.
They are both excellent skiers.
