The Dynafit Manaslu Lady of the Summit skis live for big-mountain adventures where powder snow is plentiful and steep lines abound. Ultralight paulownia wood cores keep the skis light and exceptionally smooth on every turn. Biaxial prepreg fiberglass and carbon layers above and below the core provide good torsional stiffness and lateral reinforcement without weighing the skis down. 92mm ski waists (on the 169cm skis) float through powder and crud during big-mountain, high-speed descents; 23cm-long rockered shovels excel in soft snow. Dual radius sidecut, featuring a tight radius toward the front and a wide radius in the waist, allows both quick turn initiation and large turns at high speeds. Patented titanal Dynafit Ski Insert System eliminates the need to drill your ski for Dynafit bindings (sold separately) and creates excellent ski-to-binding holding strength. Patented SpeedSkinFix attachment system securely attaches Dynafit skins (sold separately) to skis. SpeedSkinFix system does not interfere with the attachment of other brands of skins that feature a tip loop and tail clip. Base or topsheet color may vary from online photo. Dynafit Manaslu Lady of the Summit skis have a sintered graphite coating on the bases to enhance glide and improve wax retention.
Dynafit named the Women's Manaslu Ski after Nepal's mystical mountain that has allowed only a very few to scale its unpredictable slopes and ski back down again. Considering the versatility of this high-altitude touring ski, the name is fitting. Wood lends stability to the core, graphite means fast ski-track performance, beech stringers allow for tight turns in technical terrain, and tip rocker floats you through the deepest stashes. Experienced and advanced technical female skiers will find this ski precise and agile, perfect for plundering known lines or trekking out into new, more technical territory.
Dynafit's Manaslu takes its name from the Sanskrit word for soul. The soul of this ski is a lively center of 3 bamboo stringers that deliver greater boost and smooth performance, the ski returns to its original position even at high speed and on uneven terrain. Touring specific touches like an aluminum tip and Scoop Rocker remind you that this ski has a freeriding soul.
