We have noticed the need for a wide range touring ski. The 88 serie's core is channeled for lightness, but it is sandwiched in freeride grade fibreglass that can withstand a beating. The weight sorted poplar and ash cores show through the graphics all the way. This ski is a super allround alternative for skiers who want a light touring ski with great alaround performance. You can use these on groomed surface, as a light freride ski or for ski touring in all conditions. If you are looking for your touring skis but still want to use it as a resort ski, this is the perfect option.
