Technical info:
The Tour name is new this year, but the long setback (21 cm) and a mounting point quite far behind the midpoint (12 cm) is similar to other Dynafit models. It can be an advantage to have the binding mounted farther back when going uphill. The setback gives a big width difference between the front and back ski, but the flex curve has been adjusted accordingly. There is more sidecut towards the tips than in the waist, and the back ski is relatively stiff. A specific weight of 0.86 is average in this category, but it isn´t very light to be coming

On snow:
Dynafit Tour 96 feels like a classic touring ski. It performs well on soft snow and it is fun and easy to turn with in moderate terrain. However, it has its limitations at high speed and when the snow conditions are challenging. The tips start fluttering and the skis feel unstable. Dynafit Tour 96 is easy to maneuver and versatile. It suits ski touring enthusiasts who stay away from the most challenging terrain and prefer nice turns on good snow at moderate speed
