Freeskiing - Unconventional skiing at the highest level
Freeskiing is one of the most dynamic and extreme ski sports. The aim is to perform different tricks and overcome obstacles as impressively as possible. The skis used are so-called twintips, which are bent up at the front and back for landings and reversing.
Freeskiing - fun and outstanding performance even in difficult terrain
Freeskiing has become an increasingly popular form of skiing, especially in recent years. In addition to skiing on specially designed slopes with so-called "obstacles", this extreme sport also includes downhill skiing in open terrain. The latter, however, is called freeriding in distinction to freeskiing in parks or on groomed slopes. It is not uncommon for skiers to venture into untracked terrain where the risk of avalanches is comparatively high.
In addition to progressive all-mountain skis with high sidewalls for better edge grip, you will find a diverse selection of other models for every skiing style in the Ski Online Shop at XSPO. Whether you prefer playful maneuverability in powder or want to maximize the shot on the next downhill run. Innovative materials and well thought-out constructions offer riding comfort and safety in a class of its own.
In order to optimize turning, balance and posture in the boot, the binding is usually mounted centrally. In contrast, the binding on classic piste skis is positioned a little behind the middle to guarantee a certain degree of stability on relaxed descents. The name "twintip" ski, which is also often used, also reveals the special shape of the freeski, which is characterized by ends that are bent up at the front and back.
The freeski is therefore particularly suitable for daring alpine athletes who like to ski in powder on routes that have not yet been explored or who want to incorporate a trick or two on their courses. Helmets and protectors are just as essential as a backpack with avalanche transceiver (LVS) and shovel.
