The Outland 87 is the widest ski in Dynastar's all-mountain family, 87 mm. The target skier is an expert who spends as much time off trail as on. Its wood core is reinforced with a layer of woven basalt fibers, which mimics the dampening qualities of metal laminates but weighs (and costs) less. It comes with a 12-DIN Look PX binding. The returning Outland collection comprises three models designed for versatile all-mountain performance, ranging in width from 87 mm down to 75 mm and in price from $950 down to $550 MSRP. All models are wood-core Autodrive constructions - a signature Dynastar combination of vertical sidewalls underfoot for edge grip and softer cap construction toward the tip and tail for softer flex and more forgiving turn entries and exits. Subtle tip and tail rocker enhances that effect, while also absorbing shocks and improving flotation in soft snow. Dynastar also shapes the "3D" core in a way that's thinner in the middle, thicker near the edges, putting mass where it helps to enhance edge stability and removing it where it obstructs flex. All are sold as systems, with binding.
