“From the third turn, I knew they were going to kill it,” said our tester about the Glory 89. “They were crazy stable, stiff, and ridiculously quick on the rebound.” Another tester said they handled bumps, crud, firm conditions, and soft snow with ease. Dynastar says these reactions come from a construction that blends poplar wood with full-length titanium layers, making the skis both damp and snappy. A progressive, five-point sidecut makes them remarkably easy to snap between turns, but also lets them float in fresh snow.
Swami gripe: A tad heavy.
Swami like: So confidence inspiring, it will make you a better skier.
