Testing skis so you don't have to.
- Mar 5, 2017
Tricia: Renoun brings its award-winning technology to the Earhart 88, a ski that is the namesake of a female pioneer and designed just for women. I was one of the lucky few to get on this ski early and put her through her paces. My first day out on the Earhart 88 was a bluebird day at Mt Rose, which served up a variety of conditions from groomers to moguls, steeps, and mellow terrain. The Earhart delivers some of the smoothness you expect from Renoun’s VibeStop (HDT™) but still offers some feedback from the snow so you can enjoy nuances during your ski day. When warming up on groomers, the Earhart performs as expected, but when I get her in the moguls, well, that’s where she really shines.
Insider tip: If you need something longer, go for the Renoun Endurance 88.
