Technical info:
The Cham series does not resemble anything previously released from Dynastar, or anyone else for that matter. The ski touring model Cham 87 is narrow at the waist and has abrupt and pronounced rocker in front. A long and wide front ski is combined with a narrow and short back ski. The turning radius is only 15 meters. There is no rocker in the stiff back ski, but there is a lot of camber.

On snow:
The massive tips are meant to increase powder flotation, a short turning radius equals fun on hard-packed snow, while the stiff back ski is there in case you’re tail-heavy. All this makes sense in theory, but we think the result is pretty shaky and unstable, especially in demanding conditions. They were most enjoyable on hard snow. In our view, Dynastar won’t be setting the trend with this innovative construction, but we would probably have had a better impression if the test skis were longer.

This sequence of numbers indicates stiffness. Each number corresponds to a part of the ski, from tail to tip. 5 equals the average
for this part and length of the ski. Lower values indicate softer skis, higher values stiffer.
