FREERIDE 98

The VAN DEER FREERIDE 98 171 is an all-terrain / freeride ski ready to take you from first chair corduroy turns to deep in the backcountry. It’s one of Marcel Hirscher’s favorite picks. At 98 mm underfoot it’s sized for maximum versatility, with an impressive performance in a variety of conditions: floaty in powder, grippy on hardpacked snow, super maneuverable in the trees, and stable at speeds. Featuring a tip & tail rocker the FREERIDE 98 is built on the same construction as its bigger brother, the FREERIDE 108, including a poplar wood core, double Titanal and Carbon laminates, full ABS sidewalls, race edges, and a P-Tex race base. Add to that Marcel’s high-end Race Room finish and some other magic touches he won’t talk about and this ski has the potential of being your 1-ski quiver.

Designed
to
last

In everything we do we are ready to go the extra mile: We choose small, individual series rather than large-scale production. We prefer top-quality locally sourced Austrian raw materials over less expensive imported components. We leave our skis in the press longer because we know the bonding will be better. And we make sure that every single ski that leaves our factory gets a genuine Race Room finish according to Marcel Hirscher’s very own World Cup standards.

Definition.
Precision.
Perfection.

Every VAN DEER model is made for a specific playground. And each ski (as well as each ski length!) comes with a unique profile, shape, sidecut, and turn radius optimized for your preferred terrain and way of skiing. Precisely defined so you can ski your best – wherever your skiing takes you.

BUILT TO PERFECTION.
BUILT TO PERFORM.

All VAN DEER skis are crafted with the highest quality Austrian-sourced materials and components. Featuring our special torsion box sandwich construction, each model is constructed in a unique way – built to perfection and built to last.

THE VAN DEER WAY

Our skis are handmade in Austria, from superior materials sourced right at our doorstep. They are developed, built, tested, and tuned with the same know-how, meticulousness and obsessive drive for perfection that helped Marcel Hirscher become who he is today: the greatest alpine skier of our time.
