Cleaver 88 Ski
When you're waiting for the next storm system to roll on in, you need a powerful yet nimble pair of sticks. As the narrowest ski in Sego's Frontside Line, the Cleaver 88 Ski is hungry for that corduroy, begging you to make wide arcing terms down the groomers. The slim 88mm underfoot waist is what makes this stick so on-piste friendly, but there's still enough rocker in the tips that you can take it off trail without worrying about it bucking you off in the crud. The camber underfoot is generous, and gives the Cleaver 88 a longer-than-usual effective edge that's ready to charge hard or carve up a storm. Sego graced it with a playful, lightweight poplar core, then added a titanal stringer so you can hit Mach speeds with stability and precision.
- A carving machine that's hungry for on-piste turns

- Rockered tip and tail let you explore off-trail
- Generous camber provides quick edge to edge response
- Poplar core offers a lightweight, playful quality

Recommended Sizing Guide
Your ski size is largely determined by both your skiing ability and your preferred style of skiing. For example, an expert skier in Vermont will ski a far different ski than an expert in British Columbia. So take a look at our chart and explanations and find your perfect fit. Your weight also plays a large factor in finding the right ski. If you are either under or over average weight for your height consider downsizing or upsizing, respectively.
