Technical info:
Mythic is Dynastar´s versatile ski touring series, and this is the widest model in the series. We tested the same model in 2016, but this version is a little heavier and stiffer. It is still a relatively light construction with a lot of sidecut, especially in the front ski. Abrupt transition to taper in the front, combined with relatively long rocker. It has a big tip due to the generous sidecut in the front, but the soft flex and long rocker in the front will help counter the short radius in the same area.

On snow:
The new Mythic 97 is fun to turn with, and it´s stable and calm on soft snow. It´s not best at anything, but it isn´t particularly bad at anything either. The big front ski has a lot of sidecut, and this causes the tip to flutter at high speed on uneven surfaces, which means doesn’t score high on stability at speed. There are few surprises here, neither positive or negative ones. All in all, Mythic 97 is a safe choice for those want a light and versatile ski for good snow conditions.
