Scott Superguide 88 (Backcountry Touring Ski 2021/2022)

Product Summary

The Scott Superguide 88 is the perfect tool during both downhill rides and steep ascents. Thanks to its low weight, the ski is easy to master even on longer trips. The Scott Superguide 88's full retail price is 549,95 €. The Ski is roughly 20 € cheaper than the average price of all Backcountry Touring Skis, making it a mid-range model. Effortless to ride at all speeds, this ski is just right for all intermediate skiers. The Backcountry Touring Ski prefers perfectly groomed runs over fresh powder. However due to its medium-width waist, this ski is also a good shout for riders who like to venture off piste from time to time. Available lengths for the ski are ranging between 162 and 184cm.

The ski in details

The updated Superguide 88 has it all: a ski that’s as light as possible on the way up and that comes into its own on the way down. The unique construction combines an ultralight Paulownia core with hardwood Beech stringers for a stable yet lively ride. Add in Carbon/Aramid fibers and a precise 3Dimension Touring Sidecut, and the result is a lightweight package that’s surprisingly quick and reliable on the way up and won’t let you down on that hard-earned descent.

Key features:

  • Stable, strong, well-dampened ride
  • Versatile and adaptable
  • Torsionally rigid 
  • Great strength-to-weight ratio
  • Easy and fast skin fixation
