Technical info:
Dynastar want to prove that they can also make light skis, and the light paulownia wood core reinforced with carbon fibre makes Mythic a real lightweighter. The waist width is the same as on the Cham 97, and the geometry is similar. In addition to lower weight, the flex is also considerably softer. Dynastar has again chosen a very short sidecut radius and a long rocker and taper in the front.

On snow:
Since the geometry is exactly the same, it comes as no surprise that Dynastar Mythic reminds us of Cham 97. The responsiveness and the will to turn are similar. But we soon notice that the stability is not the same. Mythic is not that eager to charge through tracked snow and is less stable at speed. This is a ski you buy because you know that most of the day will be spent on the ascent.
