Set the unobtrusive, integrated Hike Ski lever in the cuff to Ski mode and the Ranger Free’s ultra stable 130 Flex keeps up with full-on alpine boots. The sleek 99mm last and carbon-reinforced Grilamid shell guarantee a snug fit and secure feel at any speed.
When the best downhills are waiting on the other side of a long uphill, the Ranger Free’s excellent walkability is a skier’s best friend. Switch the integrated cuff lever to Walk mode for an excellent range of forward motion when walking or touring. For traversing exposed rocks and ice, GripWalk with a high traction Vibram® sole allows efficient onward and upward drive.
Every component of the Ranger Free has been scrutinized and trimmed down to reach an impressively light 1540 grams. Even the 3-D preformed Active Fit Zone liner is as minimalistic as possible, yet still supportive and comfortable. It can be thermoshaped to the skier’s foot for a perfect fit.
Light weight saves valuable energy on uphills or long tours. It also means excellent agility in powder, or while walking on rough terrain, or even a crowded parking lot. Every day, and all conditions, are always different in the mountains. The ultralight feel, the excellent all-around performance, and the unparalleled walkability of the Ranger Free are for passionate skiers who want to have it all.
Offering an array of technology, the Ranger FR is tough yet playful at the same time. Its stability impresses not just in extreme powder turns but also in less-than-ideal conditions as well as on seemingly impassable routes. Above all, its shape is what really shines. The Freeski Rocker with lightweight Twin Tip makes it more agile, more maneuverable, and allows big, beautiful, sweeping turns. The shortened linear contact area of the ski works well on the hard conditions typically found off-piste. That saves energy and makes for phenomenal performance on the descent.
Stable, lightweight, powerful - the Ranger Ti models give you confidence no matter what the conditions. A double Titanal Layer, wider waist, and extended edge contact let you tackle turns aggressively on any terrain. Its light weight makes the Ranger Ti stand out. This is thanks to three factors: the Aeroshape construction, Air Tec Ti wood core and the unique Carbon Nose, a particularly thin shovel construction made of carbon.
