Product Info

For the touring fanatic who wants something that skis just as well on the way down as it hauls you up the skin track, the Völkl Rise Above 88 Skis are made for you. Made with a full sidewall for durability among spring sharks and a Tourlite hybrid wood core for weight reduction and stability, these crushers aren't afraid of a steep couloir or some spring slush.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Tip RockerOnly bends upward in the shovel area, while the middle and tail of the ski feature a camber shape.

Sidecut

3D Radius SidecutThree radii in one ski shape deliver maximum versatility - long radii at the tip and tail for stability and smoothness, and a short radius in the mid-body allows the skier to switch from long arcs to short turns at will, at any speed.

Core

Tourlite Hybrid WoodcoreA particularly light and complex wood core specially developed for touring skis. In the area around the steel edges, a poplar wood hand-picked by weight provides the necessary stability, while in the center of the ski, the soft and light Paulownia wood ensures the ski's flexibility. In the binding area beech wood provides the strength, which is needed to hold the screws of the binding. In the center of the core, a CNC-milled Isocore area contributes to optimal liveliness and dynamic development.

Sidewalls

Full SidewallDirect and strong power transmission with full length sidewalls.

Base

P-Tex 2100A sintered high-density and high molecular weight polyethylene base with great gliding characteristics and high durability.

Additional Features

Smart SkinclipThe newly developed Smart Skinclip system allows the ski tourer to decide for himself, depending on the situation, in which direction he should pull the skin on and off. A standard snap hook at the tail end of the ski allows the skin to be attached and detached from behind. The skin can, however, also be pulled on and off quickly and easily from the front. This new flexibility is made possible by an elastic snap hook, which is also easy to grip with gloves. A subtle depression in the ski tip gives the hook lateral guidance and prevents it from unintentionally releasing the skin while walking.

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
