Testers gave the Legend Paradise high scores for playfulness and versatility. "It's quick and nimble for 98 mm underfoot," said Sutton. "The tip is a little damp but if you go for it, the ski holds on hardpack too." Tip and tail rocker and a lightweight wood core add maneuverability, aided by Dynastar's Autodrive, which combines vertical sidewalls underfoot with cap construction in the tip and tail for a blend of edge hold and easy turn initiation. "It's fun to ski everywhere," said Koehn. "It's a nice, easy ski that transitions well from short to long turns and in every terrain." Dynastar's women-specific Exclusive Balance System moves both the stance and sidecut forward to increase control, raises the heel for better balance and uses vertical sidewalls where the most force is exerted for increased edge grip.
