VAN DEER Freeride 108


The FREERIDE 108 is a fat freeride ski for big mountain skiers ready to drop big lines in any terrain. At 108 mm underfoot it’s the widest and one of the most exciting skis Marcel Hirscher has developed: easy to control, light in the air, stable at speeds, and extremely floaty in powder – this is your buddy for ripping the entire mountain top to bottom. It delivers awesome floatation for surfing and smearing turns in the deepest of snow, allows you to charge through chop, and is very maneuverable, responsive, and capable of handling harder snow too. It features a surfy tip & tail rocker and is constructed according to the same ‘winning line’ recipe as the rest of our range, including: a poplar wood core reinforced by double Titanal and Carbon layers, full ABS sidewalls, race edges, a P-Tex race base, plus some undisclosed ingredients. And since Marcel wouldn’t approve anything less than perfect, this fatty comes with a genuine Race Room finish, too. Ready for the next dump?

In everything we do we are ready to go the extra mile: We choose small, individual series rather than large-scale production. We prefer top-quality locally sourced Austrian raw materials over less expensive imported components. We leave our skis in the press longer because we know the bonding will be better. And we make sure that every single ski that leaves our factory gets a genuine Race Room finish according to Marcel Hirscher’s very own World Cup standards.
