1998 All-Mountain Expert-Gold Medal Winner

Size: 170-197 cm
Price: $625
Details: The Max Zero is a live wire that spits out turns with consistency and control. Everybody in the test agreed-if you ski the lightning-quick Dynastar Max Zero right over its 62-mm-wide midbody, it will pop effortlessly across the fall line. “Great response and handling,” said Doug Lewis. “An excellent choice for the all-mountain skier who pauses at nothing because it goes anywhere on- or off-piste happily,” said Carmichael. The Max Zero got universally high marks for its quick adaptability to changing conditions, and nearly all testers mentioned its preference for a lighter touch.

Positives: Quick and zippy
Negatives: A little skittish under heavy pressure
