Bryant Leech owns this product
The Mfree 99 is a great choice for someone who wants a ski that really can do it all. With wood and PU material making up the guts of this ski, it provides a nice platform with stiffness underfoot and flexible tips and tails. The stiffness underfoot is not overly aggressive and still allows for a playful ski, but it... Read more
Ideal for
  • This is a very simple ski to turn with ease from edge to edge, it is very approachable
  • The M-free 99 is one of the more versatile skis on the market with good rocker tip and tail for soft snow performance
  • If looking for one ski that can really can do it all (even some terrain park) this is a great option
Not ideal for
  • This is not a great carving ski, it can be carved but with ample rocker and a surfy feel that is not its purpose
  • The Mfree 99 is likely too playful for those looking for super stable charging all mountain ski
  • Pushing the tips is not recommended with this ski as they are pretty soft

The Dynastar M-free 99 nails what I look for in an all-mountain ski. It's perfect for that high intermediate, advanced, and expert skier that wants a ski that has no limits inbounds. It has a great personality that's surfy, poppy, and playful, while still having plenty of power to charge down a steep, tackle technical trees, and attack the moguls.... Read more
Ideal for

  • Isn't a top choice for carving

Super fun in imperfect conditions

Originally posted at www.dynastar.com on Feb 14, 2024
I am yet to use these in powder, but these skis have transformed my experience in moguls and trails with crud. Upped by game. Fast and easier turns than my more directional M-Pros. You do need to get your center of gravity right, but man or man a fun ski I wish I had found earlier.

Love the ski, Hate the durability!!

Originally posted at www.dynastar.com on Dec 31, 2023
I have now gone through two pairs of these skis in the last 22 months (that is only 18 days skiing...). Both of my pairs have delaminated in the tips in the same spot. I am not a heavy guy, nor do I ski these super hard. I highly reccomend you do not buy these skis at all. I would maybe consider using them if I didn't pay for them them but $800 for a ski that can't even last me a season. That is with no park riding at all.

Nate was super knowledgeable & friendly!
5 /5
Nothing but great things to say about Nate! He was SO responsive and offered many suggestion in my price point. He tailored my ski equipment based on my body needs. He knew things I’ve never even thought about, like my high arches and how that would impact boot selection. We had a blast picking out my skis and he was so patient as I went back and forth many times. I recommend everyone work with Nate!

I haven’t skied in 15 years. Tyler helped me understand the new technology and products available. He knew I wasn’t in the market to buy too much equipment but still steered me towards gear that would work best for me to rent.

Went through my first Curated purchase process, and was really surprised about how helpful Nate was in helping me select my new gear. He was friendly, asked the right questions, and and answered everything from me. He knew all the products he recommended, and let me know about some important differences in equipment that I needed to know before making my purchase. He also kept me under budget, which was extra awesome.

Mark won't steer you wrong!
5 /5
This is the second year in a row I've come to curated to recommend me a pair of skis. Last year, I submitted for all mountain skis with a focus on carving and Mark recommended me a pair of Atomic Maverick 95ti 172. I've absolutely loved them. Mark nailed it on the head with these as I was easily able to accomplish my carving goals for that season. He/She/They provided quick responses, detailed technical explanations when asked, and an overwhelmingly pleasant experience. This year, I submitted for a freestyle ski and they paired me with Mark again! I'm not sure if curated does that by design but it was very convenient as I had access to our chat history from last year to look at the previous discussions we had. This time, Mark recommended a pair of Armada ARV 94 171. Once again, he/she/they provided quick feedback and solid technical advice about ski length and binding mounting positions. I have purchased these skis for next season so I have yet to try them, but many other reviews seem to agree with Mark's recommendation. I will return by the end to next season to document my experience, but I have full confidence in Mark's recommendation of these skis. Mark won't steer you wrong!
