The Omeglass S Fluid X is a slalom-style ski, offering 153, 163, and 173 cm lengths. Its 14 m radius (at 163 cm) is built for quick and snappy turns through the course or on the trail, and considering that this is a skinny ski, the course and trail are where it is intended to stay for the most part. For something similar but with a slightly shorter radius, check out the Omeglass Speed Ti Fluid X. This ski is part of Dynastar’s Speed series of race-inspired skis. Traditional camber is used here for tip-to-tail edge grip and traditional rebound energy. A touch of ti rocker mellows the turn initiation for drifted turn entries. Lateral Flex technology is built to adapt the ski to varied terrain, stiffening and softening when it needs to. Lastly, the WC Sandwich Laminate Construction comprises the bulk of the ski, containing wood cores, Titanal, and fiberglass laminates. Whether you’re trying to catch up with Ted Ligety or just trying to win your local beer league, this is one of the best series Dynastar has to offer you. Dynastar, based in Chamonix, France, was founded in 1963. Its U.S. headquarters are in Park City, Utah.
