Technical info:
A lot of sidecut, wide waist, stiff tail and pronounced taper define all Dynastar skis at the moment. They also have stiff tails, while the Cham 117 has a relatively soft front ski. Fibreglass sandwich. Otherwise, the previously criticized extra sidecut towards the taper at the tip has been removed and the sidecut radius is now steady. The camber almost goes all the way out to the tail.

On snow:
Cham 117 is a large ski that doesn´t work well on groomed slopes. It takes you down, but that’s about it. Outside the trails it gets a lot better, although not all are convinced. Cham 117 feels a bit unbalanced, and it is not as playful as many of the other skis in the same size. However, this might work if you like other Cham models. Be aware that the Cham-series is very different from the Dynastar skis from the heydays at the beginning of the millennium, and that they may require a little time getting used to.
