Technical info:
We don’t usually associate Dynafit with piste skis, but this is precisely what they are. High specific weight and long shape transitions compared to previous models. A lot of rocker in both ends. The front ski is soft. A lot of sidecut throughout.

On snow:
The second heaviest ski in the category is easy to maneuver and stable downhill. However, a specific weight matching KYE makes Meteorite somewhat heavy. It feels responsive, agile and good, even though the test riders comment that the tip flutters a little. This is probably due to the combination of a soft front ski and long rocker. The ski is also easy to turn. If weight is not an issue, Dynafit Meteorite can be a good choice for many.
