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.
The Standard bend occurs above the handle. The majority of our customers choose this style.
Straight outriggers are inspired by Peter Axelson. They allow the skier to reach out to help with carving for a more aggressive skiing style
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.
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. We generally recommend this style for intermediate and advanced mono skiers.
For standard flip, the ski tip flips up when the string is pulled. This allows for more stability when stopping or standing. This style is most appropriate for novice mono skiers.
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!
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.
