From the FREESKIER Buyer’s Guide:
Dynastar M-Tour 99
The idea for the M-Tour 99 was simple—to avoid the twitchy, nervous feel that plagues so many backcountry-focused skis and create something more akin to its alpine-specific counterparts. Dynastar engineered this ski to put you in the captain’s seat with its Hybrid Core, a proprietary mix of paulownia wood and polyurethane. In the core of the M-Tour 99, the wood gives the ski its power, energy and pop and the molded polyurethane delivers predictability in the feel of the ski from tip to tail, quieting it and absorbing vibrations while maintaining responsiveness. In order to meet the downhill demands of its top athletes, Dynastar also reinforced the ski with a lightweight basalt fiber weave. This ski offers everything you’d expect out of a mid-sized, all- mountain ripper: sufficient float and the ability to nimbly juggle a variety of conditions from chop and chunder to ice while not weighing down the skier on long climbs and big days.
Lange XT3 Tour Pro
For the 2021-22 season, Lange is taking its rich downhill history into the backcountry with its new XT3 Tour Pro boot, blue-and-orange color scheme included—a literal representation of the brand bringing its race heritage to the backcountry. To get the power, elasticity and progressive forward flex of an alpine boot at an ultra-lightweight, Lange utilized tried- and-proven technologies from its XT3 series— namely, the Dual Core technology and Active Power V-Lock walk mechanism. By injecting the shell mold of the XT3 Tour with two different hardnesses of a lightweight, nylon-based Grilamid plastic, Lange is able to achieve the same characteristics of its alpine boots in a much lighter shell construction. Positioning the XT3 Tour Pro as the ultimate free-tour offering, backcountry skiers will be able to seize every spine-riding, pillow popping-opportunity in the 2021-22 season with peace of mind knowing they are in complete control of both the up- and downhill.
