The Distorter, a twin-tip, is Dynastar’s most park-specific ski, but it’s built for all-mountain versatility with a traditional sidecut (rather than symmetrical) and an 87-mm waist. Its wood-core, full-sidewall laminate construction gives it power, but the absence of metal keeps it light and lively. Dynastar’s Spring Blade core is shaped for maximum thickness underfoot, for solidity on edge, with step-downs toward the progressively thinner tip and tail, for playful smeariness. It’s only sold flat (no binding).
