Description

The Rise Above 88 is part of the new Völkl freerando range for men. 

The Rise Above 88 combines all the most important criteria for any good ski touring: light weight, climbing ability and good downhill skiing. The ski owes it lightness to a Tourlite Woodcore composed of wood with lightweight characteristics such as poplar and paulownia.

In terms of descents, the Rise Above 88 is very agile due to its Tip Rocker as well as its flat and rigid tail. In crusted snow conditions, the Rise Above 88 is an easy ski. Equipped with the 3D Radius Sidecut technology you will have 3 different radii of curvature to make small or large turns as you wish. On the ascent, its performance and handling in difficult and narrow passages are particularly noteworthy. 

It also features SkinPin technology, which makes it easier and faster to apply the skins so you can save time and energy on your climbs.

The Rise Above 88 represents an ideal compromise between a light touring ski for uphill touring and performance in all snow conditions

Technologies :

- 3D. Radius Sidecut :

Use of the long radius in tip and heel for large turns at high speed
Easy driving and manoeuvrability
High speed resistant tips
No radius limitation and easier

turn exit Use of the shorter radius for small turns at medium speed
Very easy to enter a turn
Remarkably agile
Less effort and smoother short turns

- SkinPin Technology : Skins are connected by a pin with the ski's shovel (rotation of 90°). Result: 100% reliable bindings. Since the device is visible from above, the skier has perfect control at all times. The hole at the tip of the ski can be used if necessary to build a rescue sleigh or sledge.

Team review

The Rise Above 88 is an ideal ski for intermediate to advanced skiers who are looking for a versatile ski that allows them to have as much fun on the way up as on the way down. It's a very easy to handle and easy to learn, and you quickly gain confidence in it. The Rise Above 88 will not fail you and will allow you to be at ease in all conditions.

The advantages: light weight, excellent ascent/downhill ratio
Disadvantages: Bearing capacity in deep snow.
