Dynafit knows that the backcountry isn't full of lollipops and corduroy snow, and that's why it created the Women's Manaslu 2. 0 Ski to be a versatile backcountry bomber ready for a variety of terrain. Built to excel in challenging conditions including powder, crust, and tough ascents, this touring ski finds an ideal balance between weight and performance. Dyanfit's ski engineers gave the Manaslu a lightweight wood core, high-performance laminates, and unique air channels all meant to cut down on heft while still feeling rock solid when gravity takes hold. Dynafit built the Manaslu knowing that weight reduction doesn't mean jack if your ski feels like you're riding a foam plank, so things like carbon speed stringers are there to increase torsional rigidity and dampen vibrations for increased stability at speed and in hard snow conditions, all while keeping things light. Micro sidewall construction uses multiple horizontal layers to create a strong, impact-resistant sidewall that uses less material and weight than a traditional sidewall. Like a mountain bike's suspension fork, Flex Tip technology provides superb vibration dampening, smoothly absorbing impact. Its 3D carbon construction keeps things light. Scoop and tail rocker provide float and control in the deep stuff or over crud while a Pintail allows for an energy-saving body position and intuitive control.
The women's Manaslu skis, with their revolutionary ski geometry, 23cm-long shovel and tight dual-radius cut, are built for challenging backcountry conditions, including powder, crust and more.

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.
