What would happen if you bought just one ski that could do it all? Would you still use your other skis out of guilt? The best way to avoid this problem is to stay away from SCOTT's Speedguide 89. Not too little in the middle, this baby has the backing of a full-length paulownia wood core that also incorporates Carbon/Aramid fibers to increase stability and torsional stiffness while still keeping the ski lightweight. The construction for 2020/21 gives the ski a much damper feel than its predecessors of the same name, allowing it to plow through any conditions Mother Nature can dish out. The 3Dimension sidecut profile makes it quick and easy to put on edge for knifing the skinniest of slots. A speed demon in multiple ways, this ski has a bit of an identity crises; for as well as it climbs it skis even better! All this adds up to make the Speedguide 89 a fun, versatile ski that will perform well in a plethora of conditions and would make it an ideal choice for a Skimo Co approved quiver of one!

Questions & Reviews
I just tried Völkl Rise 84, which was not bad, but I am hearing odas of Scott Superguide series. I just realized that there is a Speedguide 89 as well.
Wonder what your opinion is on it if usage is 70% climb 30% descent and more hard snow than powder?
Great question! The entire Superguide line is listed as having a "tip to tail ABS sidewall." Hope this helps!
