While much of the Dynafit ski line is dripping with skinny Euro sidecuts and spandex, the Beast family keeps things on a fun-loving level. The women testers were especially impressed by the Beast 98 W, which is lightweight for the skin track but descends like a much heavier ski. With an eager, take-on-anything shape, the Beast 98 W won testers over in softer snow, and the ash-poplar core with a carbon-glass overlay reduced chatter when conditions firmed up.
