New this winter is the super-versatile, women’s specific Superguide 95 W.
We loved last year’s Lightweight Touring Ski of the Year – the Superguide 88W – so we had high hopes when we heard the folks at Scott had added the wider Superguide 95 W to the line-up.
Filling that understandably popular ‘do everything, ski everything’ 95mm underfoot gap, it turns out the Superguide 95 W is every bit as good as we’d hoped – result!
Stiff enough to stand up at higher speeds yet supple and forgiving through short turns, our female test team were unanimous in their praise for the Superguide 95 W at the Scottish Ski Test.
“It’s super easy to wield and rebounded energetically without feeling like it might fold in half in firm conditions” said Amy. “It’s got a freeride feel that gives you confidence to push on the downhill. It ate up the lumps and bumps and hopped over the heather like a happy haggis”.
When it’s time to start earning those turns, the Superguide 95 W has got mountain goat ascending capabilities thanks to its low weight and easy skin fixation system.
The lightest of our 2021 Women’s Backcountry Editors’ Choice skis at 1370g per ski, it’s as feathery as a fluffed up duck but still super durable and strong thanks to the addition of beech wood stringers to reinforce the paulownia wood core.
If you’re looking for a well-balanced women’s-specific touring ski for hut-to-hut Alpine tours, summit-to-sea spring Nordic adventures, day hits in Scotland and everything in between, the Superguide 95 W will have your back.
A genuine backcountry quiver of one contender.
