Technical info:
In total weight and specific weight, this is this year´s lightest ski. It has the smallest surface area in the test, and the waist is the second smallest in this category. Mythic´s geometry is similar to the skis Dynastar made in the past. Here you have classic lines with sidecut in the entire ski, and the bended tip is shorter than what we are used to from Dynastar in recent years. The radius is long for this type of ski. Soft in the front.

On snow:
"Mythic 87 performs well in short turns at low speed. But, unlike the rest of Dynastar´s models this year, it is unstable at high speed. This is because it is an extremely light ski. A relatively even and soft flex and moderate sidecut can compensate for the light weight. It is not as unstable as many other super light skis. This is a lightweight ski for ambitious free riders who are seeking vertical metres."
