Product details: Völkl Rise Above 88 21/22
The first choice for demanding alpinists in high elevated terrain to whom ascents and descents are equally important. The Völkl Rise Above 88 is the most versatile ski in the new touring ski range with equal strengths in both ascent and descent.
The Hybrid Tourlite Woodcore provides an impressive combination of minimal weight (1190gr @ 170) and riding stability. The 3D radius sidecut provides a highly resistant tip which is especially useful when skiing in wind-blown snow conditions.
The sidecut construction provides both agility as well as maneuverability in narrow passages. For ski tours with heavy loads the combination of a more narrow waist under the foot and moderate shaping in the tip and tail areas helps skiers to stay in control and requires less effort when changing the direction.
The Rise Above 88 also comes with Völkl's new Smart Skinclip which is available with Fibre Tech and Smart Glue skins.

The combination of beech under the binding and poplar plus paulownia in the outer areas results in a very lightweight woodcore construction which proved to work especially well for touring skis.
