The Tour 96 model guarantees delight for ski tourers on any terrain. With a waist of 96mm at the binding, this model plays to its strengths in powder and in general on the downhills off piste. Nevertheless, developers have paid attention to maintaining a low weight. At 1,500 grams (size 176), this model is suited for both long, athletic climbs, combining comfort on the ascent with downhill performance. Its design combines cap construction and sidewalls to achieve the optimum performance-to-weight ratio. A fully integrated aluminum tip guarantees simple and reliable transitioning. Its 3D construction was specially developed to reduce the density and thus the swing weight of the ski in front of and behind the binding. This guarantees stable handling despite such a light weight. The rocker construction and the sidecut are also adapted for each ski size, a unique feature in the ski touring market. This keeps the effective edge length equally proportional to each size, allowing it to function independent of the size. The poplar-Paulownia wood core gives the DYNAFIT Tour 96 both no-chatter smoothness and stability on the descent as well as good handling on the climb.
