They say

Dynastar’s Active Pro is designed for versatile performance on the piste for intermediate-to-advanced skiers. It features a very light integrated binding, a high-density multicell core, and rocker for easier turn-initiation.

We say

The Actives are very easy to use, their light weight being a significant part of their character. They respond instantly to any input from the skier - you can almost change direction without thinking about it! The rockered tip is matched with a shovel that’s quite soft, which makes turn-initiation really easy, while it’s effortless to adjust through the arc. At medium speeds on easier pistes, the Active is a dream - ideal for aspiring carving skiers. At high speeds on hard snow, that lighter construction makes itself felt, the ski struggling to hold an edge. Strong, fast skiers would definitely prefer something more powerful.

Tester Comments

Lynn Mill
Easy to use - they respond instantly to edging and pressure.
Rowena Phillips
An easy ski that takes the thinking out of turning - its soft flex in the tip makes turn-initiation easy.
