THE VERDICT

Dynastar's hard-arcing Powertrack 84 has the ability to make a lot of frontside skiers happy, with easy turn initiation, excellent carving capability, and versatile turn shape. Great on everything but fresh snow and more cut-up conditions.

FULL REVIEW

Mixing traditional camber with the ease of initiation from some very well-executed tip rocker–as well as a deep–sidecut, Dynastar’s Powertrack 84 is one of the finest all-mountain frontside skis. Testers raced about how fun these boards are to put on edge in almost any turn shape, their wonderful responsiveness, and consistent stability. Lively in the bumps, and precise in the trees, on the groomed they possess a downright giddy kind of energy.

It’s still not a ski for people who like to ride their boards more than drive them, and you will leave these home on a powder day (they got one of the lowest rankings for float in this category). From intermediate to expert, the Powertrack 84 is built to make the majority of all-mountain frontside skiers very happy.
