They say

Powertrack is a new range of all mountain performance skis from Dynastar. The 84 uses a moderate tip and tail rocker with traditional camber underfoot. A progressive five point sidecut is designed for powerful carved turns, but is still easy to release.

We say

The Powertrack pivots and turns on a dime, it feels light underfoot while the tip and tail rocker really helps to make it effortless to steer. This ease of use allows it to feel playful and versatile when moving into deeper snow and cut up conditions. On the piste it grips well in long turns, with the edge hold coming in strong directly underfoot. In short turns that easy pivoting makes it great for changing direction, with good grip underfoot, the rockered tip and tail lack a bit of contact with the snow, but overall it responds well. As a ski that combines piste performance and softer snow conditions, it’s a real achievement.

Grips well in all turn shapes, pivoty, easy to use, great fun

Light easy and very nimble, easy to pivot and smear when pushed hard
