Technical info:
Dynastar claims to have combined the best elements of freeride and all-mountain design on the Powertrack 89, a name they also used back in 2000. “Ti” refers to it being reinforced with the aluminium alloy titanal. This is perhaps the reason why it has a lot of rocker in the front and almost no rocker in the back. The ski is stiff in both ends, especially in the back. It also combines a lot of sidecut with a relative high camber.

On snow:
Powertrack is fairly easy to turn, bordering on shaky. It can be quite responsive, but is not predictable like many other skis in the test. It feels like the binding is mounted too far in the front, although the technical test doesn´t support this idea. Perhaps it´s the sidecut towards the tip that makes it a little difficult to master? In total, it fails to achieve either of its two objectives – it is not the most maneuverable nor the most responsive ski in the test.

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.
