"Dynastar returns with the Booster 8. Starting with the proven Autodrive technology a ski that utilizes cap construction at the tip and tail and a vertical sidewall underfoot a ski that will be both forgiving on turn initiation and exit but with tremendous edge hold is framed out. Inside the Autodrive platform Dynastar uses a full wood torsion box core. This gives the most tunable flex Patten maximizing power and Torsional stiffness equating to complete stability and high rebound energy. On top of the Autodrive Dynastar places the Fluid binding integration system. A composite plate which the binding attaches to allowing the ski to flex and float freely underneath. This combination increases overall flex and forgiveness of the ski while maintaining Torsional rigidity. For the skier this means stronger turns with less effort. Less effort needed means a longer day on the mountain. Falling into Dynastars on trail collection the Booster 8 is a reliable front side carving ski for newer skiers preferring marked and groomed trails. The Booster 8 is a comfortable ski for most progressing beginner skiers providing decent edge hold with a reliable forgiveness allowing performance characteristics while not punishing mistakes. These qualities make the Booster 8 a good option for teens transitioning to adult equipment as well"
