Pro You can say this about the Legend Pro: It’s got nerve. So does Dynastar, charging $1,095 for a flat ski. What do you get for the money? Think "fat race-stock super-G ski," handmade in Dynastar’s Sallanches, France, race room. Dynastar says it takes much longer to make a Pro Rider this way, which explains the price—similar to what race-stock skis cost. Other similarities: vertical sidewalls, wood-core laminate construction with two sheets of metal, high-density racing base. Testers were divided, but agreed it’s a serious—and seriously unforgiving—stick. Proponents loved its hair-trigger accuracy, quickness, balance and calm at speed. "Ball-of-the-foot skis," said Morgan. "Stay over the middle of it, and the world is your oyster." Con Potentially fatiguing for all but the fittest.
