Volkl Rise Above 88 Skis

Designed to take you to the highest peaks and across the longest traverses, the Volkl Rise Above 88 is the epitome of a lightweight dedicated Alpine Touring ski. This ski focuses on providing a ski experience that involves as little weight as possible while still being able to maintain a robust and stable enough profile needed for descents in the variable conditions often experienced on adventures deep in the backcountry. Volkl's Tourlite Hybrid wood core uses Beech under the binding and a blend of Poplar and Paulownia in the outer portions of the ski which give the ski a robust and responsive flex similar to what you would find in a more resort-oriented ski just without the weight. Further adding to the stability of this ski are camber underfoot and a flat tail. This profile in combination with the construction make this ski trustworthy for descents in sketchy conditions. At 88 millimeters underfoot, this ski is by no means a true powder ski, but a bit of tip rocker allows this ski to handle some soft snow with ease should you be fortunate to get some of it on your adventure. This ski's shape also features Volkl's 3D Radius Sidecut which allows for varying turn shapes and added stability by shaping the ski in such a way that longer arcs fit into the shape of the tip and tail while a shorter arc fits into the ski's shape in the center. Dedicated alpinists and passionate recreationalists looking for an efficient and reliable touring ski will love the balance of uphill efficiency and downhill performance provided by the Volkl Rise Above 88.
