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.
The Low Bend (Ed Luck's) occurs below the handle. This brings the tips closer to the skier for increased stability.
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 advanced stand up 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 more appropriate for intermediate and novice stand up skiers because its is easier in the lift lines and when stopping along a run.
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 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 intermediate and novice skiers.
