Slalom and Race Carving Skis for less at XSPO
Slalom and race carvers are fast skis that are mainly suitable for advanced skiers. Slalom carvers are relatively short and strongly waisted, while race carvers are long and hardly waisted.
Carver - fast skis for ambitious skiers
Those who love high speeds and an aggressive skiing style should reach for these carvers. They are specially designed for competitions and offer professional racers and experienced recreational athletes great skiing fun. Both slalom and race carvers are characterized by the curve radius specified by the waist. In addition, these types of skis are equipped with a soft flex and high torsional stiffness. Nevertheless, they are designed for different needs - you should consider this when buying!
Race Carver - for high speed even in breathtaking sloping positions
Race Carvers, also called Giant Slalom skis, are especially designed for high speeds. In their construction they are based on giant slalom racing skis. They have a low waist, so they are suitable for medium radii from 16m. Due to their torsional stiffness, they have good edge grip. They are rather unsuitable as all-day skis, because you should ski the race carving skis powerfully and actively. Only in this way do they unfold the full driving fun. Since the skis are driven relatively long, usually your own body size is given as a recommendation for the length.
Slalom Carver - the model for tight turns on groomed slopes
In contrast to race carvers, slalom carvers are kept rather short and should reach about shoulder height. They are also strongly waisted with a small radius of 10 to 13m. The torsional stiffness and the use of the right carving technique results in an easy, dynamic feel in the turns. Even as an advanced beginner, you can have fun with the sleek slalom carver at lower speeds. For hard and icy slopes, these skis are also suitable. Whether fast race carvers or agile slalom carvers, the XSPO online store has the perfect carving ski model for every need. If race or slalom carvers are too special for you, we recommend our sport carvers or all-mountain skis.
