The Blacklight 88 for women offers convincing performance on alpine terrain and in all snow conditions as a light, versatile, high-end Speed touring ski. This model was developed just for athletic, ambitious women ski touring enthusiasts who seek a light ski for the climb, but at the same time put value on outstanding downhill performance. The Blacklight 88 for women offers a women-specific Flex that is softer and lighter than in the unisex version. This makes the ski much more playful and enables more maneuverability on the descent. With an all-round sidecut and 88 mm underfoot, the shape is ideal for both hardpack and soft conditions as well as for great powder. In addition, the new Blacklight 88 for women features the time-tested construction and properties of all the other Blacklight models. This ski has a 100% “UD” carbon top layer. UD is the abbreviation to describe the “uni” or one-directional arrangement of the fibers. Compared to classic carbon construction, UD carbon lends higher tensile strength and greater resilience while maintaining a lower density. The Blacklight 88 has a 100% premium Paulownia wood core. Thanks to its 3D construction, the ski lowers its total weight to reduce its swing weight in front of and behind the binding area to essentially reduce the overall weight of the ski. You get extremely stable ski handling despite its low weight. The rocker construction at the tip and tail and the sidecut are also adapted for each ski size – a unique feature in the ski touring market. This keeps the effective edge length equally proportional to each size, allowing it to function independent of the size. In order to guarantee the best possible power transfer on the ski, the Blacklight is constructed with a full ABS sidewall. In addition, the base has a special racing grind for even more speed.
