The Chrome 72 is the narrowest, least expensive and most forgiving Chrome model. Its soft, metal-free construction and deep sidecut are designed to help novices and intermediates master the carved turn at moderate speeds. The new Chrome series embraces the carve and is built for maximized on-trail performance on the hardest of snow. The line includes three models ranging in width from the 78, for skilled technicians, down to the 72, a friendlier construction for novices and intermediates at lower speeds and edge angles. Subtle tip rocker allows feathering of the turn entry (a concept now accepted in race skis as it allows athletes to take more aggressive lines), while the rest of the ski is fully cambered for strong edge engagement and powerful turn finishes. All are wood core, full vertical sidewall constructions, variously reinforced according to its target skier ability. Laminates are staggered in length so the ski is thinner and more torsionally flexible near the tip and tail as needed to work with the ski's sidecut - Dynastar calls it Torsion Control.
