Custom Titanium Outriggers


  • Sold in pairs (or individually upon request). 

    For the expert skier or racer, this is the ultimate in outriggers!  There are no adjustments that add to wear and tear.  We build the outrigger to your exact measurements and a pair of Superlites weigh just 3 pounds.

  • Superlite Outriggers come with a variety of choices because we feel it is important to accommodate a wide range of ability levels and unique customer needs. Below we provide some insight and general recommendations to help you with these choices.

    Grips

    Ergonomic grips improve comfort and control by increasing support at the skier's palm. They are made of soft black rubber and are left/right specific.
    Endurance grips are made of slightly firmer rubber. They are designed to reduce fatigue and improve control while not being left/right specific.

    Flip

    For competition flip, the ski tip flips down when the string is pulled. This allows for a faster, more fluid skiing style with less resistance on the snow.  This style is preferred by more advanced skiers.

    For standard flip, the ski tip flips up when the string is pulled. This allows for more stability when stopping or standing. It is traditionally used by novice skiers but is often preferred by stand up skiers as well.

    Tips

    Our new NEXGen ski tips are stronger and lighter. A tapered and rockered tail reduce “chatter” at speed while an open pin design reduces the chance of snow jamming. The ski angle can be adjusted 15 degrees lower and the basket for the "crutch" position is integrated into the ski tip itself. Learn more about NEXGen tips here.

    Original tips are the Industry's number one selling ski tip and continue to be a popular choice for programs and individuals alike.  They're classics!

    Resistance

    Ice Screws are designed to reduce resistance while skiing. We recommend these for intermediate/advanced skiers.
    Brake Claws provide extra resistance and stability while skiing. They actively break during use which is helpful for those just beginning to ski. We recommend these for novice skiers.

  • The X, Y and Z measurements are three measurements needed to make your custom outriggers.  The X refers to the distance between the top of the cuff and the top of the grip handle.  The Y refers to the distance between the top of the grip and the bottom of the ski tip. The Z measurement is the circumference of your forarm at it's widest to give you the correct cuff size. Always use a tape measure, not a ruler, as it's more flexible.

    Correct Arm Cuff Location:

    The higher up on the forearm your cuff is, the greater the mechanical advantage for you. However if it is too high up, the cuff will bite into your upper arm when you lean over to pick something up.   The distance between the point of your elbow to the top of your arm cuff at the back should be about 3 inches if your height is around 5'-8".  If you are 6' tall or taller that measurement should be about 4". If you are 5' tall the measurement should be about 2". These are general guidelines only. 

    The best way to measure this distance is to sit down with one outrigger on and point the ski tip at the ceiling, bending your elbow at a 90° angle. Lay a tape measure on the back of your forearm so the end of the tape touches the back of the cuff. Then read the distance to the point of your elbow. This is only a guideline and your own comfort and usability will be the deciding factor.  If your current outriggers are adjustable, try them at different heights. As an example, if you decide that your current cuffs are too low by an inch, add the inch to the X measurement after you measure.

    X measurement: 

    Using a tape measure, measure from the top back surface of the hand grip to the top of the arm cuff. Measure along the bend of the outrigger.

    Y measurement:

    Hold the flip ski bottom in a perpendicular position. Using a tape measure, hook the end to the bottom of the ski and measure to the top surface of the hand grip.

    Z measurement:

    Using a tape measure or string, measure your forearm at it's widest part.
