Read our preview of 2021 Dynastar skis
Dynastar has dialed in their collection in the last couple years around the Legend X family on both the men's and women's sides. We're big fans of the skis here at Powder7—we've enjoyed ripping groomers, slicing bumps, and playing in the trees with them. So we're not surprised to see only cosmetic changes for 2020 Dynastar skis on the Legend front. Those cosmetics look sweet, too.
Did we mention ripping groomers? Well the Dynastar Speed Zone has always been a fun ski to do that with, albeit a stiff and aggressive one. For 2020, Dynastar rolls out a new line of carving-oriented all-mountain skis, the Speed Zone 4X4. "These skis feel light and ski heavy," said one rep at Outdoor Retailer.

Check out our preview of 2020 Dynastar skis.
Highlights from the 2019 Dynastar skis lineup:
Maintaining the heritage of the Legend label, Dynastar builds some strategic updates into the line for 2019.
The X75 and X80 are new additions, while the X84 and X88 come back stronger and more powerful. The Legend's new shape looks to really impact the wider skis in the line, offering easier turn initiation and better float—characteristics that should help them excel in a highly competitive category.
On the women's side, the Legend W comes in at waist widths of 96, 88, 84, and 80. Dynastar aims to get maximum versatility out of the line, meeting the needs of women skiers with different styles and abilities. The construction updates from the men's side ... Continue Reading
2020 Dynastar Legend X96 Description:
Your winter is going to be LEGEN...wait for it...DARY. Legendary! Even if you don't get the How I Met Your Mother reference, you get the point. Dynastar gave the Legend series a paint job but left the construction untouched for 2019-2020. We see nothing wrong with that approach. The Legend 96 mounts a perfect storm of power, maneuverability, and versatility and unleashes it on the mountains near you. Built for the true all-mountain skier, someone splitting his time pretty much 50/50 between trails and off-piste terrain, the Legend 96 rails groomers, turns easily, and flows smoothly through bumps and trees. There is enough width and rocker to float most powder days but not too much for the skis to slip out or get deflected in hard or mixed snow. So now you see what we mean. Whatever the weather this winter, you will be hooting and hollering. Similar skis: Volkl Mantra M5, Fischer Ranger 94 FR, Head Kore 99.
