Technical info:
This is the smallest ski in the Pinnacle series that was introduced last year. Like the other skis in the series, it has a deep sidecut and a long and pronounced tip with rocker. The wood core is reinforced with a combination of aluminum and fiberglass. The waist is soft, and the relatively high camber stands out.

On snow:
The little brother in the Pinnacle series is a small freeriding ski that stands out for its high rocker Pinnacle 88 is a very forgiving ski, and considering the waist width it performs ok off-piste. It is predictable, but tame, on the groomed slopes. It can be a good option for beginners on and off the groomed slopes. More experienced skiers might find it rather unsatisfactory in both areas. Occasionally the tip flutters.
