Last year’s Lightweight Touring Ski of the Year, the Scott Speedguide 89 returns with a new topsheet and the same tried-and-tested elliptical paulownia wood core.
This cunning sandwich sidewall with carbon/aramid elliptic construction gives more lateral and torsional stiffness for less weight, yet still allows a whippy flex that makes the ski such fun to ride.
Throw in some high-strength (and vibration-absorbing) kevlar and this gives the ideal high-performance construction for demanding ski touring endeavours.
At 89mm underfoot, this will suit the traditional ski tourer who doesn’t need to go any wider.
While Scott are hell-bent to keep the weight down, they still put more ski where it is required – so the 123mm tip and 113mm tail give you a 19m radius in the 176 length.
Combine this with the progressive sidecut and a pro-tip rocker and you get a lot of downhill performance in just 1270g per ski.
Also in 80 width.
Ideal high-performance construction for demanding ski touring endeavours. Will suit the traditional ski tourer who doesn't need to go any wider.
