The Rise Above 88 W is the first choice for demanding female alpinists for whom ascents and descents are equally as important. The most versatile ski in the Rise line, it is light enough for a swift ascent, yet burly enough to perform well in all downhill conditions – from holding on ice to cutting through crud and cruising in powder. The hybrid Tourlite wood core provides an impressive combination of minimal weight (1,190 g @ 170 cm) and ride stability. The 3D radius design is especially useful in the constantly changing conditions found in high alpine terrain, providing exceptional agility in narrow passages and steadiness at higher speeds, for example. At the same time, the narrower waist underfoot and moderate shaping in the tip and tail minimise effort when skiing. A true touring ski that delights on both the up hill and the downs!

This ultra-light pin binding (245 g w/o brake) offers active length compensation when the ski flexes and an impressive power transfer downhill due to a 38 mm drill pattern. A carbon-reinforced toe provides great stiffness and comes with anti-ice pads and integrated elastomers for easy stepping in. The heel features a climbing aid with 0°, 5° and 9° angles and can be quickly and easily switched between hike and ski mode. Another useful feature is that the Alpinist allows a +/- 7.5 mm heel adjustment to suit various sole/boot lengths.
