Reviewer Heyman

"What I look for in my ultimate freeride ski is plenty of float, maneuverability and playfulness. And you should be able to lay some trenches on the slopes as well. Weight reduction is all important for easy turning in difficult circumstances."

Solid flat tailed freeride ski


The Dynastar Cham 2.0 107 has the typical Cham series wide shovel, early rocker tip and flat tail. This unusual combination gives the Cham 107 good floatation in deep powder snow and the ability to carve on piste as well. The flat tail also provides stability in the carve turns. When you've started the turn, this ski will go on turning no matter what. To me that's a reassuring feeling, but also a little bit boring. The Dynastar Cham 2.0 97 is much more nimble and a far better ski as a whole.

Difficult to find a skiers match

All in all the Dynastar Cham 107 is a solid ski. But I wonder about its purpose, which skier is the perfect match? It's not that very wide freeride ski that is made for the extreme deep dry fluffy powder snow like the Armada AKJJ 2.0. It's not an all-mountain ski either. For that the Cham 107 is too wide, the edge switch too slow, not good enough on-piste. I can't imagine anyone who would prefer the Cham 2.0 107 over the Cham 2.0 97, which is so much better on-piste. To go freeriding on the Cham 107 demands a good technique. And that little bit more float of the Cham 2.0 107 is not going to make much difference.

Dynastar about the Cham 2.0 107

"Featuring a new, next-generation blend of rocker, sidecut, and construction, each element of CHAM 2.0 has been rethought, re-designed, and re-shaped to deliver maximum versatility and the hard-charging freeride performance that's synonymous with CHAM. At 107mm underfoot, the all-new CHAM 2.0 107 provides adaptable freeride performance no matter where the snow takes you. Moderate tip rocker provides better snow contact, float, and control; combined with traditional camber and a slightly rockered pintail for confident power and maneuverability. The smoothed-out five-point sidecut and more balanced, lightweight core profile provide smooth turn entry and exit for playful and instinctive performance in any snow condition, combined with the lightweight touring versatility to access any backcountry adventure.", says Dynastar. All this might be true, but it is irrelevent because there's still no reason why anyone would buy the Cham 2.0 107, because there is the Cham 2.0 97. Still it's worth a 3 star rating.
