Reviewer Gijs

"Versatility is what counts most in an all-mountain ski, a good performance in all kinds of snow. But since this category holds just about anything from 80 mm piste-oriented carving machines to 110 mm powder boards, the devil is in the details."

Two for the price of one


The Dynastar PowerTrack 89, tested at 179 cm, is an all-mountain ski with two faces, literally. The smooth, precise body of the ski is a well-mannered carving platform. The tip of the Powertrack 89, however, is part of a modern looking powder ski: relatively soft, floaty and gentle. This is not a one-ski-quiver, but rather two skis slammed into one. There is no unity, no consistent line throughout the ski. But then again: you really don’t need one. The flappy big shovel of the Dynastar Powertrack 89 is not in the way of technical on-piste turns; the main body and especially the slightly tapered tail is great for soft snow. So there it is: two for the price of one.

Light and subtle

This widest member of Dynastar’s PowerTrack family is the only one with metal reinforcements. Still, it is not a heavy ski. Lightweight and finesse skiers will love this ski, as will anyone who is an advanced intermediate wanting to venture off-piste for a bit. The Powertrack 89 is stable and quick enough for carving hard pack (though heavier or strong skiers will most likely find it less stable), and just poppy enough not to fold up on you in deep snow – as long as it is fluffy. Heavy crud, heavy skiers, heavy anything and the Dynastar Powertrack 89 ski crumbles.

Dynastar about the Powertrack 89

"This is "all-mountain", unchained. The all-new POWERTRACK 89 introduces a new era of all-mountain performance for expert skiers. Combining the best elements of modern freeride and all-mountain ski design, this breakthrough new one-ski-quiver provides a huge sweet spot, keeping you firmly balanced in the driver's seat across all terrain and snow conditions. Moderate tip and tail rocker provides effortless balance, float, and control through variable snow, while traditional camber underfoot retains the power, energy, and edge grip for solid hard-snow performance. A progressive five-point sidecut allows for powerful carved turns that engage quickly and release with ease in any snow condition, providing the consistent yet playful versatility and control that sets a new all-mountain standard. Equal parts power and playfulness, maneuverability and control, Powertrack delivers the well-rounded, freeride-inspired performance to make the entire mountain your playground. 60% Off-Trail/ 40% On-Trail Rec. Binding: LOOK SPX 12 B90", says Dynastar. Equal parts of everything - true. These parts meet half-way down the forebody of the ski.
