This highly versatile all mountain ski from French A-Lister Dynastar packs a punch for advanced to expert women skiers looking for a ski that performs exceptionally well on-piste and has some off-piste capabilities too.
The hybrid Paulownia wood core has a higher density built in that lowers the weight without compromising on performance. There's a tip rocker that creates an easy turn initiation and helps a little with float in powder snow conditions, but perhaps the most interesting part of the construction is the 3D profile that Dynastar says transfers the power evenly throughout the whole ski.
It certainly feels that way, especially on groomed and hard packed snow conditions where the E 4x4 7 feels most at home. Yes it's wide for an on-piste ski at 82mm under foot, but the turns are lively and responsive, with even the short radius variety feeling zippy and quick edge to edge.
The skis aren't too stiff for moguls either, making this ski one of the most versatile Front Side (an American term for all mountain skiing that focuses mostly on groomed slopes but can also include more variable terrain) skis on the market for women.
They are perfectly at home in deeper powder snow too, although they aren't a pure off-piste ski, for anyone looking to maximise their time on the mountain and needs something to handle the deeper stuff when it arrives, they are a great option and at £500 with bindings, feel like incredible value for money.
Could work well for ski instructors that need a solid all-rounder
