Technical info:
Dynafit´s widest model in the new Beast series is considerably lighter than its predecessors. Nevertheless, Beast 108 is still a piste ski. Negative camber, long rocker in the front, a short and flat waist and a small rocker in the back ski. Even flex all the way and smooth transitions between taper and rocker. It has less camber and the construction is lighter compared to the Beast 98 we tested last year.

On snow:
The biggest model in the Beast series is predictable and calm, in a positive sense. You will not be up for any big surprises, and this is perhaps a little boring. But it also means that it performs well at high speed and through the big turns. Beast 108 will make you feel safe, and the lack of camber, combined with long rocker and even sidecut and flex, gives predictability and stability. At the same time, it feels a little weak on hard surfaces. It doesn´t make the test riders weep of joy nor anger. Dynafit Beast 108 is best suited for the ski touring enthusiast who wants a predictable ski for the big mountain.
