Vertical F-Team Ski
Pull the idea that superlight skis suffer in downhill performance out of the mythical closet of trolls, dragons, and fairy tales, because Dynastar's Vertical F-Team Ski is a myth made true. The Vertical is a hybrid of sorts, with a mountaineering-friendly, ultralight construction hovering around four pounds per pair and downhill performance that will leave tears in your eyes. Its 87mm waist is undoubtedly more ideal for technical, icy terrain found in the high alpine, but Dynastar's patented profile ensures a solid ride wherever hard snow resides in the backcountry.
The Vertical F-Team sports long tip rocker that helps track steep skinners, enhances turn initiation on the downhill, and maneuvers around hidden sharks and thick tree lines. Camber underfoot increases shock absorption and edge grip when you're gaining speed. Dynastar made this ski with an ultralight core made of paulownia wood and Dynacell foam and sturdy C-ply carbon laminates for an optimized feel on snow and balanced flex, which translates to more power and better performance on the descent.

- Long tip rocker eases tracking on the ascent

Recommended Sizing Guide
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.
