The Transalp 88 is a dedicated backcountry touring ski that's lightweight, easy to maneuver and performs great on the downhill. Granted this ski is intended to save energy while climbing uphill, you'll be surprised to notice that it holds up even on groomers at the resort. This ski comes ready for touring though, with a skin notch on the tips and tails. What are you waiting for? Get out there and start your Trek!

Description

Details

Free Binding Mounting: We will mount you ski bindings for free whenever you order skis and bindings. If you order boots, too, we can adjust them so they are ready to hit the slopes right out of the box! Just be sure to fill out the mounting form that comes up after checkout.

Skier Ability: Advanced to Expert: Skipping the blue runs to get to the black runs, but sometimes a little cautious when it gets very steep, or some hesitation when your buddy says, ''You just have to clear those rocks or else you're toast.''

Wood Core: The standard core which has throughout time provided the best performance and durability. Each model may have it's own density level to help define flex and maximum speed but every wood core ski will be solid.

Sintered Base: The material used for the base is harder, and therefore more durable than other options (Extruded). This material should be waxed regularly for best performance.

Skin Notch: There is a notch in the tail of the ski that helps the clip of climbing skins stay in place. It doesn't change the skiing characteristics of the ski at all, but it is pretty nice to have if you tour in the backcountry.

Tip Rocker: This refers to the early rising of the tip to get the ski on top of the soft snow, rather than pushing through it. When the skis are held with the bases together, it will look like the tips are bent, and spread away from eachother. Tip rocker also helps skiers pivot the skis, making tight trees remarkably easy, and gives the ski a surf-like feel.

AirTec Ti Construction: The Air Tec wood core has been given an elaborate, offset milled structure which, on the one hand, makes the core 25% lighter and, on the other hand maintains the outstanding ski performance, both flex and torsion remain the same. A special milling finish of the full-surface Titanal Shell saves even more weight, especially in the All Mountain sector.

Aeroshape Construction:The patented Fischer Aeroshape technology makes the tour ski much lighter and, thanks to the special core and surface construction, also far more stable. This is how a Fischer Aeroshape ski offers you better climbing performance together with improved downhill performance.

Will K2 skins with their z-clip tip attachment work on these skis?

Hi, I have telemark bindings. They are Meidjo 2.0 bindings. They have a tech binding front and end NTN binding mid-soul. The are essentially a Rotefella NTN binding with a different front. They also have a standard heel piece. Will the work? I assume they will.

Great ski!!Review by Skiboyj

Bought these to Tele on...they are quick and responsive, light and agile. I have 22 Designs Vice bindings with Scarpa T1's and nothing on the mountain stands in the way; good in trees, bumps, powder and the groomers; holds a rock solid edge when carving either in Tele or Alpine mode and the graphics are outstanding...great ski!!!

Exactly what I wantedReview by BCSLC

I don't ski uphill, but I wanted a strong lightweight ski so it's easier on my knees when turning quickly in the trees. I love these. Everyone had ideas of skis that I might like, but when the L9 rep showed me these my hardest decision was what width I should buy. I love the 88's and they're exactly what I hoped for. I'll hang on to these until I can't ski anymore. (Posted on 2/17/2016)
