Dynastar Legend send murmurs through the freeride community!

“Dynastar Legend Skis Blend 40 Years of Big Mountain Heritage
with Cutting Edge Freeride Technology.”

Expectations of the Legend series are nearly as big as the skis themselves.  The term ‘midfat’ does not seem so fitting when you see these skis in the flesh.

As a follow up to the the popular Intuitiv range, the Legend series encompass the next chapter in Dynastar’s freeriding history.  Insanely wide, the range features wider shapes, technical side cuts and kick tails to provide excellent flotation and fluid pivoting.  Dynastar’s patented technology Autodrive comes as standard for trademeark grip.

Funky new graphics, a scratch resistant finish, and Sisal not fiberglass construction will help this range become as notorious as any other.
