The Rise Above 88 W is the first choice for demanding female alpinists for whom ascents and descents are equally as important. The most versatile ski in the Rise line, it is light enough for a swift ascent, yet burly enough to perform well in all downhill conditions – from holding on ice to cutting through crud and cruising in powder. The hybrid Tourlite wood core provides an impressive combination of minimal weight (1,190 g @ 170 cm) and ride stability. The 3D radius design is especially useful in the constantly changing conditions found in high alpine terrain, providing exceptional agility in narrow passages and steadiness at higher speeds, for example. At the same time, the narrower waist underfoot and moderate shaping in the tip and tail minimise effort when skiing.
The Rise Above 88 W is a touring ski that delights on both the uphills and the downs.
