The FREERIDE 98 is an all-terrain freeride ski that has got range. Ready to take you from corduroy to deep in the backcountry, this is one of Marcel Hirscher’s favorite picks. At 98 mm underfoot it’s sized for maximum versatility, with an impressive yet playful performance in a variety of conditions: floaty in powder, grippy on hardpacked snow, very maneuverable in the trees, and stable at speeds. Featuring a good amount of tip & tail rocker for that surfy feel on storm days, 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 is your ski for inbounds hike-to terrain as well as deeper days out-of-bounds.

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.


Every 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.


All 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.


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.
