The Elite 11 Fluid is one of the wider skis in Dynastar's Elite series, with a 121 mm tip and 72 mm waist. These dimensions are still quite skinny, though, and are intended for optimal edge control on groomers, as they are quite similar to that of a race ski. The Elite 12 Fluid's 14 m radius (at 165 cm) is also intended for quick and snappy turns and classic camber from tip to tail are designed to help these turns be as smooth as possible. For something similar but a bit skinnier, check out the Elite 12 Fluid. The Elite series includes race-inspired, on-trail carvers with narrow waists. 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.
