2016/2017 Dynastar Speed Zone 12 Ti ski review. OnTheSnow tested this ski as part of its men’s Frontside Category and awarded it an Editors’ Choice honor.

“This ski holds a turn like a Porsche 911 Turbo,” says Jakob. “This ski is made to arc and rip through bumps.” The Speed Zone 12 Ti received its highest scores for carving, lowest for versatility. Dynastar’s on-trail series features four models, including the 72-mm-waisted Speed Zone 12 Ti. New Powerdrive “active suspension” technology absorbs vibration. Construction includes one full-length layer of titanium, poplar wood core, full vertical sidewalls and tip rocker. The new Konect system adds a Look dual WTR binding. “This is an intermediate through expert, all-coast ski for hardpack groomers and corduroy only,” says March.
