Blacklight Ski Series Review
Review from headquarters of Dynafit North America on the Blacklight Ski series.

Incredibly lightweight and narrow of waist, the Blacklight Pro Ski excels on long, adventurous backcountry tours. Designed with ski mountaineers in mind, or those who seek distance and elevation goals over fresh snow, the Blacklight features an ultralight combination of paulownia wood and uni-direction carbon laminate. This unique carbon construction delivers high tensile strength and durability at a low density that reduces swing weight while maintaining stability. And since the rockered construction and sidecut are adapted accordingly for each ski length, it maintains an effective edge length that keeps you in total control at all times. Its unique Pin-Skin system is designed to work with Pomoca's Race Pro 2.0 skin (not included), but will also fit the normal Dynafit Speed Skin for full-length traction.
Your ski size is largely determined by both your skiing ability and your preferred style of skiing. For example, an expert skier in Vermont will ski a far different ski than an expert in British Columbia. So take a look at our chart and explanations and find your perfect fit. Your weight also plays a large factor in finding the right ski. If you are either under or over average weight for your height consider downsizing or upsizing, respectively.
