Dynastar Chrome 78

Aug 15, 2013
"Go to the groomed snow with this one" Gaudet said of the Chrome 78. "It's solid, predictable, edges easily and transitions smoothly." Testers recommend the user-friendly Dynastar carver for intermediates and up. "A little easy to overpower, but anybody can make this ski turn," Dittmar said. The Chrome 78's race-inspired construction includes full-length vertical sidewalls and a dual wood core featuring basalt. The relatively smooth-feeling flex comes from staggered lengths of core material as well as a plate that allows the ski to bend around the forebody and tail. Combined with tip rocker, the Chrome 78 moves easily in and out of the turn. "It's a fun ski in the fall line," Bills said. "Grab it if you're looking for a solid performer that likes to carve short turns."
