They felt good at low speed and when cruising around the mountain.
The energy this ski had, or didn't have.

The Dynastar Legend 84 is a women's specific ski designed for advanced riders who want to explore the whole mountain, mainly on piste, but with options on more variable terrain and the odd foray into powder snow.

Labelled for advanced skiers, the Legend 84 is more suited to less aggressive turning, at lower speeds, both on and off-piste. If you push them too hard, the lack of response lets you down - ideal for intermediate skiers looking to improve their turns, especially in softer snow or moguls, but beware if you like charging hard - we were frustrated but the top end performance of these skis.

For intermediate skiers though, they present a more laid back approach to the piste, travelling from A-B comfortably and without putting too many demands on the rider. Turns are easy to initiate at slow and mid-range speeds, and edge grip is good apart from on the very hardest snowpack.

They are true all mountain skis and are perfectly happy dipping off the side of the groomed runs into softer powder snow, but anything deeper than boot top length and they start to struggle with the 84mm waists not providing the stability required.

The top sheet is simple and very much fits in with the Dynastar branding, but aesthetically they are pleasing to the eye. With a suggested retail price of £490 including bindings, they are good value for money and would be an ideal choice someone looking to purchase their first pair of skis and wants versatility across the whole mountain.
