The new DYNAFIT Blacklight 88 weighs barely 1,140 grams (at 172 cm) with a waist of 88 mm. The name Blacklight combines the word “black” for its color, which also represents the 100% carbon construction, and the word “light,” meaning it is a very light ski with luminescent character. The Blacklight 88 is the lightest all-round ski from DYNAFIT and meets the demands of ambitious, fast ski tourers looking for a light, handy touring ski for any terrain and any snow conditions. The Blacklight 88 has a 100% carbon top layer. UD is the abbreviation for the one-directional (“uni”) arrangement of the carbon fibers. Compared to classic carbon construction, this engineering lends higher tensile strength and greater durability while maintaining a lower density. Furthermore, the Blacklight 88 comes equipped with a 100% Paulownia wood core. Thanks to its 3D construction, the ski lowers its total weight to reduce its swing weight in front of and behind the binding area. This ensures extremely stable ski handling despite its light weight. The rocker construction at the tip and tail and the sidecut are also adapted for each ski size, a unique feature in the ski touring market. This keeps the effective edge length equally proportional to each size, allowing it to function independently of the size. In order to guarantee the best possible power transfer from skier to ski, the ski is constructed with a full ABS sidewall. In addition, the base, i.e. the surface that contacts the snow, has a special racing grind to ensure you are the fastest one on the mountain.
