Various Dynastar skis

Dynastar is a winter sports company based in Sallanches, France. Founded in 1963, the name Dynastar was born when Les Plastiques Synthétiques, manufacturers of Starflex skis, collaborated with Dynamic on a new compound ski. The Dynastar brand is owned by the Rossignol Group.

The Dynastar ski division is run as a separate entity and is responsible for creating stand alone products separate from the rest of the Rossignol Group.[citation needed]

Tommy Moe of the United States won the 1994 Olympic downhill on Dynastar skis. Kjetil André Aamodt of Norway was the runner-up in that race, also on Dynastar; during his career, he won eight Olympic medals (four gold) and a dozen medals in the World Championships, including five gold.

Later, Julien Lizeroux of France had great success on Dynastar skis in the slalom with three World Cup slalom wins and two silver medals at the 2009 World Championships.
