Alpine Ski Scott Superguide 88

Ski sold without binding.

The Superguide 88 by Scott is a high performance touring ski. Featuring the same construction as its bigger brother (the Superguide 95), it comes with carbon and kevlar on top of its super light woodcore and loses 7mm at the waist for added lightweight and agility on the snow. 

What can the Scott Superguide 88 touring ski do? 

If you are into touring (and you probably are if you’re reading these lines) you know the importance of saving weight. Boots, poles, bindings, skis, everything has to be as light as possible so it doesn’t slow you down when you’re skinning up. With this in mind, Scott engineers designed the Superguide 88. It doesn’t matter if you plan a day trip or a long tour that’s going to last a week, the ski deals with both easily and helps you burn less calories than other skis. Incredibly light on the ascents, it feels nimble, holds well in difficult conditions and turns tight. Once you take the skins off, you get a good and lively ski under the feet. Its width and stiffness make it responsive and fun to move around. It inspires confidence and bold skiers will have no trouble picking up speed with it no matter the terrain. It’s also a good option for tech skiers who like to ride in tight conditions, but you will reach its limits on deep powder where it works ok but not great. 

Who is the Scott Superguide 88 touring ski designed for? 

Nature lovers who spend more time climbing on their skins than laying turns on the downhill are going to love the Superguide 88. It is advisable to have advanced technical skills to control the skis which are incredibly light and efficient through ascents without compromising downhill performance on firm conditions.

Structure - Construction

  • Tip to tail woodcore  :

    The long woodcore gives the ski a more consistent flex and more fluidity through transitions.

  • SSCL Carbon E  :

    TECHNOLOGY & EXPERIENCE - SCOTT’s SSCL Carbon is a result of a carbon experience and heritage. The combination of a sandwich wood core construction with carbon laminates results in a lightweight performance construction ideally suited for ski touring.

Camber type

  • Classic camber  :

    When the ski sits flat on the ground, the tip and the tail are in contact with it while the midsection rises above. It is this section that maximises the energy transmission towards the edge, ideal for piste skiing. It also provides a rebound which enhances energy return and pop.

Technology

  • Pro Tip 300 mm  :

    By incorporating a progressive tip height radius, SCOTT skis simply track better than the competition. SCOTT's Pro-Tip produces a more consistent ski flex and predictable turns. Pro-Tip is available in three heights 300mm (Precision On-Piste), 350mm (All-Mountain) and 375mm (Full Freeride). Tip Rocker 300mm

Rocker type

  • Tip rocker  :

    Skis are more manoeuvrable, contact points on the skis are placed in order to reduce the effective running length, which allows easier pivot and a better float.

Various

  • 3D Sidecut  :

    Revolutionary technology combining 2 radius with a central straight sidecut, allowing twin rocker skis to be brilliant on off pist with an excellent edge grip on pistes.

  • Factory Finish  :

    SCOTT skis come direct from the factory "ready to ski" with SCOTT factory finish. Every factory finished ski leaves the factory with side edges ground at 89° and base edges ground between 0.5° and 0.8° for exceptional performance. The base is finished with a micro structured CNC stone grind so you can mount your skis and hit the hill, no tuning required.

  • Skin strap system  :

    Fast and easy skin strap system for all weather conditions
