The Active 10 is designed as a versatile carving ski that can also hold its own outside of the groomers. Its 126 mm tip is built big enough to plow through fresh snow and other varied terrain, and the 74 mm waist is similar to a race ski, designed for ripping turns on harder snow. The 13 m radius (at 163 cm) is also quite short, designed for quick and snappy turns no matter where you take this ski. Lastly, the ski’s early rise rocker is intended to help the tip chop through those varied conditions as it lifts up and over for a smooth ride. The Active 10 is part of Dynastar’s Elite series, which focuses on race-inspired, on-trail skis. Natural Stance technology takes into account women’s lower center of gravity and is designed to shift the ski’s pressure points to accommodate, and progressive sidewalls run down the entire ski (many models only have sidecut in the underfoot area), intended to create great edge grip. If you’re a lady who loves ripping turns on groomers and other hardpack snow, this is a great series for you from Dynastar. Dynastar, based in Chamonix, France, was founded in 1963. Its U.S. headquarters are in Park City, Utah.
