The signature feature of Dynastar's Legend X 96 is Powerdrive, a three-piece sidewall that goes about dampening shock in the forebody in an unusual way. By segmenting the sidewall into three parts, the laminates in the core are no longer bonded to the outer ABS sidewall, freeing them to shear back and forth to mitigate shock, retain ski-to-snow contact and promote smoothness and ease to the ride.

All this makes the Legend X 96 the most user-friendly model in a genre stocked with powerhouse skis. The way the Powerdrive system sucks up irregular terrain makes the Legend X 96, “Predictable, comfortable and confidence inspiring,” according to Peter Nestor.
