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!

  • Pro-Tip Rocker 320 keeps those tips floating in deeper snow.
  • Full-length elliptical Paulownia wood core creates a consistent and stable ride.
  • 3Dimension Sidecut ensures a precise edge hold.
  • Carbon stringers add stability and dampness without adding weight.
  • Precut skins sold separately.

Questions & Reviews

Question from Benoit

I’m 5’10", 65kg. I’m planning to use the Scarpa F1LT. Would you recommend the 163cm that that you still have in stock or look for another model of a quiver?
Answer from jbo
Hi Benoit, 163 would be a bit short for you, ideally you'd want the 169. For the same price and length in stock, check out the Salomon MTN.

Question from Kristof
I am in the search for a perfect blend of uphill/downhill skis with some increased powder ability than my old K2 Shuksan 78 167, which is bit small in size for me in all dimensions. I am 186, but just 68 kg.
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?
Answer from Brett S
Thanks for reaching out, Kristof. For your purpose, the Speedguide 89 would work well!

Question from MOSE
I'm 186cm and 85kg, would the 176cm good enough for me or should I look elsewhere? I'm after a versatile ski for all season in European conditions.
Answer from Brett S
Thanks for your question, Mose. If you're using a beefier boot, this ski might be on the light side for your size and weight. A Zero G 95 or Scott Superguide 95 in the larger size may offer more support. If you are using a lighter boot, the 176 in this ski could definitely be a contender. In essence, this ski would be better for "picking" your way carefully down the mountain whereas the Blizzard and Scott's in the wider width and longer size will offer the chance for more aggressive skiing. Please let us know if you have any other questions!

Question from Brian h
I'm not sure what "sandwich sidewall" means. Do these have an ABS sidewall? Full length or partial?
Answer from Patrick C

Great question! The entire Superguide line is listed as having a "tip to tail ABS sidewall." Hope this helps!

Question from PTM
How different does this compare to last year's version? Does it ski very differently? Your description makes it sound like it changed a lot, but the features and specifications seem identical (see for the older version). I skied the previous version in Europe last year and liked it, so wondering how different this would be.
Answer from jbo
Hi PTM, SCOTT updated the construction, notably in the core. They didn't change the dimensions and profile from last year's Speedguide so it has the same turning characteristics. But it has an improved feel, noticeably smoother and more damp. If you liked the previous version, you'll love this one; it rails!
