Pierra Menta Race Carbon Ski
Situated as the lightest and most maneuverable ski in the Dynastar line, the Pierra Menta propels you up the skin track at the blistering speeds required for randonee racing. While stowing a few tricks up its sleeve for stable descending, the Pierra Menta embodies uphill efficiency at the core of its identity. A slim waist and relatively soft flex pattern provide a skinning performance that is not only lightweight but agile, allowing you to pick through those spells of steep kick-turning terror at speed. Full sidewall construction and carbon layering within the core offers added stiffness in the apex of the turn, keeping the ski secure feeling for maneuvering steep couloirs. Once on the ski, you might even crack a smug grin as you flawlessly hop-turn through variable snow in a way that your old SkiMo skis never could. The Pierra Menta is bred for race day, yet hangs with steep skiing missions heavy in vertical gain.
- Featherweight alpine touring ski for competitive randonee racing
- Dynacell wood core combines lightweight materials for climbing performance
- Carbon fiber lining improves energy transfer for navigating technical descents
- Tip rocker provides versatility in variable conditions on the ascent and descent
- Sidewall sandwich construction ensures durability after copious summit missions
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.
