They say

The new Active is positioned within the mid range of Dynastars on piste performance skis for women. It uses a light construction and the binding placement has a raised heel to help with balance.

We say

This is another ski with a soft flex, this allows it to feel smooth and responsive in medium carved turns, feeling perfectly suited to easy conditions on the piste. It feels easy to initiate the turn and for general all round piste cruising it’s a great ski, feeling light, smooth and effortless to use. For fast turns on hard conditions it feels too soft and can break away when put under a lot of pressure. This is a good choice for a intermediate to advanced skier who loves skiing the pistes.

Tester Comments

Lynn Mill
Fun for an all round ski lady, easy to initiate at the start of the turn
Rowena Phillips
Softer touch makes freshly groomed slopes like a knife through butter
