They say

The Ranger 98 Ti offers easy maneuverability in every situation - thanks to its carbon nose. With Air Tec Ti and Aeroshape for that light feeling.

We say

Unchanged from last year, the Ranger still gives out a classy, smooth ride, managing to make even the most chopped up conditions feel like silk underfoot. This is matched up to a very light construction which makes the ski feel light and easy to use, while delivering that smooth ride. These characteristics allow the Ranger to give the skier great sensitivity, you can feel exactly the type of snow you are skiing on, this is something that can really make a difference when skiing challenging backcountry conditions. Overall, this is a great ski, with a very strong character, that handles all conditions with ease.
