Freeskiing - unconventional skiing at the highest level
Freeskiing is one of the most dynamic and at the same time most extreme types of skiing. 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 is a type of skiing that has become increasingly popular, 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. However, the latter 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 manoeuvrability in powder or want to maximise your shot on the next downhill run. Innovative materials and well thought-out constructions offer riding comfort and safety in a class of its own.
To optimise turning behaviour, 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 centre to guarantee a certain degree of stability on relaxed descents. The name "twintip" ski, which is also often used, already reveals the special shape of the freeski, which is characterised 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.
