Still a reasonable weight for touring, it is not in the weight class that makes it a backcountry only ski, and many will choose it even though they only plan to ski inbounds. The Hokkaido has enough muscle/mass to be a worthy inbounds ski, whereas most Dynafit skis are best suited for the backcountry only. With a weight hovering around 9lb in all lengths, the Hokkaido is by no means an ultralight ski, but as all big mountain skiers know, extra weight is an absolute necessity when slicing through variable snow conditions. The Hokkaido is a departure from typical Dynafit designs on almost all fronts. The full ABS sidewall construction favors strength over weight, but delivers durability when the skis inevitably make contact with rock and ice.
The profile abandons traditional camber underfoot in favor of Dynafit's all-new Double Ellipse rocker profile. The profile is fully rockered in the tip and tail and is flat underfoot, allowing for more effective edge to engage as the ski rolls over--this means that the Hokkaido will not only hold an edge in steep and icy terrain, but it allows the Hokkaido to carve like a race ski once you're ready to loosen your turns up down open faces and slarve turns in deep pow when conditions turn prime. Carbon fiber stringers and fiberglass work to increase torsional rigidity, while the full carbon shovel saves weight while acting like a suspension fork to eliminate tip chatter for a confidence-inspiring feel you won't find on any other touring-specific ski. Double Elipse Rocker - The two elliptical curves at the waist and at the curve of the rocker work in tandem.Depending on the effect of pressure placed on the binding area, you get varying edge length ideal for each situation. This guarantees optimal edging on icy steep terrain without losing the playful lightness in turn initiation and control. Ash-Poplar Ride Core - By combining the high strength of ash with particularly lightweight poplar, Dynafit created a highly responsive core with outstanding damping properties and rebound without giving up lightness. This has a particularly positive effect on power transfer to the edges and cuts down on chatter at high speeds.
Carbon Speed Stringers - Roving carbon stringer enhances the ski's performance at speed. Full Carbon Tip - A special carbon core in the tip reduces mass to optimize vibration and damping qualities. Alloy Tip with Speedskin Fitting - A CNC milled aluminum tip is an integral part of the ski construction to guard against impact, reduce vibration, and form the climbing skin anchor point.
Full ABS Sidewall - Impact resistant ABS along the full length of the sidewall for durability and precise edge control. Sintered Graphite Base - Dynafit selects the hardest running surfaces available, while still offering optimal glide and wax penetration.
