Technical info:
Dynafit has always produced light skis, but not necessarily the very lightest. Now they want to change this, and Dynafit Denali is the lightest ski in this category. It has the long boat-like tip, which characterizes the latest models from this ski touring giant. This is combined with a short sidecut radius, especially in the back.

On snow:
Denali is a surprisingly light ski, and it is always exciting to see how this affects the maneuverability. It is playful and it floats well in powder, and it´s fairly responsive in the groomed slopes as well. It lacks some stability, in particular in tracked snow. But all in all, this is a ski for those who want to trade solidness for a lighter ski on the ascent.
