Volkl Women's Rise Above 88 Skis

When considering gear for use on long tours and arduous ascents, most people make their choices based on the balance of efficiency and reliability that that gear provides. The Volkl Women's Rise Above 88 offers both of those characteristics without sacrificing the performance needed for technical descents in the high alpine. Providing ample stability in a lightweight package is Volkl's Tourlite Hybrid Wood core with which this ski was designed. A mix of strategically placed Beech, Poplar and Paulownia keep the weight down while allowing the ski to perform at a high level. While the core helps dictate the ski's flex, it draws a lot of its prowess from its shape. Camber underfoot ensures solid edge hold when conditions are less than ideal, while a flat tail and fairly extended sidecut provide stability at high speeds in windblown snow often found at elevation. Tip rocker helps the ski stay up and out of softer snow and crud to keep you floating as you make your way down your line. Lastly, Volkl's 3D radius Sidecut keeps the tip staying true on its intended line which is a crucial design feature for getting through buffed out snow and choppy terrain with confidence. This shape also allows for a lot of turn shape manipulation at a moment's notice which is advantageous when you need to go from long arcs to tight turns as the terrain changes on your descent. Dedicated alpinists will love the low-profile efficiency and unsuspecting stability of the Volkl Women's Rise Above 88.
