The new Cham series (a nod to the company's Chamonix heritage) includes four different waist widths (127, 107, 97 and 87) which share similar construction including full length vertical sidewalls, lightweight wood cores with titanal and Dynastar's Levitation Profile (a 5-point sidecut) with a progressive tapering in the tip and tail, traditional camber underfoot and a flat pintail. "The wild tip shape helps create a playful, fun feel," noted Beidleman. "The huge shovel keeps the tips up and the skis felt longer when on edge," said Volckhausen. "It's edgy when needed and smeary when wanted," added Ertl.
