All Mountain — Groomed trail performance with no shortage of grip and control along with confidence in variable snow and crud.

Description

The Endurance 88 lets you choose where you want to go, anywhere on the mountain. A narrower, more hard-snow-specific version of its older sibling, the Endurance 98, this ski is the perfect pick for skiers who primarily ski groomed terrain, yet still desire performance off trail. Variable and uncertain crud melt under your feet as the full-metal titanal sheet plus VibeStop™ soak up any impending chatter in your path and make for a smooth, powerful ride.

Awards

“One of the most interesting skis for me this year – yet again – is a ski by Renoun…The Endurance 88. I think [VibeStop™] is the craziest, most true, marketing speak that we’ve come across in over a decade… [VibeStop™] is totally true…It’s fascinating.”

How it works >
  • Stability of Titanal
    Two sheets of titanal metal add even more damping power and confidence at speed.
  • Versatile Shape
    With rocker in the tip and tail, the more you tip the ski on edge the more it engages in a turn. Also lends itself to a much more forgiving personality. Easy to smear, yet still carves like a beast.
  • Race Base
    Sintered 4001 Race Base with an optimal balance of speed and durability.
  • VibeStop
    Soaks up impending chatter and vibrations to make for a smooth, powerful ride.

VibeStop™

We embed channels of a non-newtonian polymer called VibeStop™ into every ski we make. When exposed to vibrations, the polymer hardens actively damping the ski. It literally adapts to snow conditions and ski style. It’s the first of its kind, sounds too good to be true, right?!

Minimized Chatter

VibeStop™ decreases chatter & vibrations by over 300%.

The strength of this ski is, adaptability

Reviewer: 63 y/o, 5’11”, 152 lbs. Current Alpine Ski Patroller and former Adaptive Ski Instructor. Skiing preferences: Wide fast trails allowing the skis to do most of the work. Ski: Renoun Endurance 88, length 177cm ( 129-88-112, R 16M ) Bindings: Marker Griffon Date: 3/24/2021 Location: Mt. Snow, West Dover, Vt. Conditions: East coast spring conditions. Overcast day with temperatures between 38 – 54 degrees. The cloudy sky kept the snow consistent from the summit to mid-mountain. Below mid-mountain the areas frequently skied by the other customers quickly became wetter and thickened. Review: The first thing I noticed; you need to be centered. Once you and the ski find the sweet spot, you will feel it from the soles of your feet to the top of your head. The Endurance wants to ski. It wants to move. It wants to go fast. It loves to edge, and it can hold that edge for a long as you ask it to. While skiing the smooth thick snow on the shoulders of the trail, the 88’s easily alternated between frequent rotational short swing turns and gentle elongated edged railroad tracks. At times, I could feel the 88’s yearning for more edging and less rotating. Making a quick turn we left behind the smooth thick snow, entering the well-used middle section of the trail. On narrow trails, we picked our way through the troughs and mounds of heavy thick snow using combinations of edging and rotation. The 88’s wanted to do more. Wider trails provided them with the opportunity to do just that. The lighter rocker-cambered 88 provided enough initial toe lift to avoid most of the resistance when it encountered a mound of thick heavy snow. This is important to lighter skiers like me when trying to tip and rip through the spring conditions we had today. If the ski was flat, the lift slightly delayed the stiffening of the shovel. On edge, the shovel was firm and steady. The 88 was happy and responsive, so was I. If relaxed lazy elongated railroad track “S” turns are your thing, this ski is for you. Are you a hard charger, high edge angle with your upper and lower half separation visible from the base lodge? Then buy these skis. Do you love that sexy release and rebound as you transition between turns? That is what you get with the Endurance. The strength of this ski is its’ adaptability. It responds quickly to changes in the snow and the directions of the skier. It is a fun ski.

Endurance 88 (170cm) - Fierce!

Huge uptick in stability and confidence at high speeds. Feels like I can push the skis as hard as my skiing ability will let me and the ski is still rock solid. Strong graphics and good customer service when purchasing doesn't hurt either. 106s are next! Andy

Phenomenal ski! Extremely responsive in tight spaces and hard pack. It's my go to ski at my local resort.

Zero chatter at high speed, rips like they're on rails. Amazing customer service. This is my first Renoun ski and will not be my last. Already looking to get the 106 for next year and a pair for my wife.

Flippin Sweet!

I scooped up a pair of factory blemish Endurance 88 in 184cm length as a more playful ski to buzz around with the family. My daily driver WAS a pair of Volkl Deacon 84's, but I was finding them to much to muscle around with my 8 year old son. The Endurance 88 is a freaking blast to ski - light and playful enough to have fun with the family, and enough ski to rip some solo runs too!

Jascha was great. I explained to her what and how I ski and we picked the endurace. Nice soft curves but when you push them on hard turns they hold the edge. I was surprised at how well they handled in powder, as well as found the soft spots in the morals.

Very impressed.

Really enjoying my new skis i got before the ski season started. I’m mainly skiing on the East Coast but took those to Colorado and it was a lot of fun. We skied 7 consecutive days and never got bored of them. Also enjoying skiing and being part of a not so mainstream ski brand.

I’m 47 and I felt like a kid

The skis are a blast. I was looking for something a little narrower underfoot that would be better on hardback and ice than my K2 Pinnacle 95s. With the snow this weekend in Stowe I was tempted to leave them in the car and I’m so glad I didn’t. For a ski that’s advertised as being primarily for groomers and hard snow, I had a blast skiing all un-groomed terrain today. I’m 47 and I felt like a kid. Thank you for making a great ski.

They are truly the best skis I have ever owned!

I purchased Endurance 88's in Dec. and due to the weather we've had so far in the east, have skied them in about every condition we normally get. They have never disappointed me. They are truly the best skis I have ever owned!

No marketing required!

I can reflect on decades of skiing and very rarely does the marketing of a “breakthrough” technology support the actual product. Renoun is that rare exception and is truly a unique game-changer when it comes to skiing. I’ve never skied a ski that felt so light and yet was able to quietly cling to the mountain while holding its edge. While I never thought I’d make the leap from my prior brand, I am now bound for Renoun!

RENOUN nails it again.

I've been skiing the RENOUN Z-90's for several years on the East Coast, and absolutely loved them. They were for me, the perfect east coast 1 ski quiver. They would rail on the groomers, and take me all over the mountain in almost all conditions with no issues. However, the last couple of years, I've been drawn to more of the trees, and bumps, and was wondering if a lighter, more playful ski with a bit more rocker would be a better fit. Bam! the Endurance 88 comes out, which seems too fit the bill. I was concerned, though, about the Endurances' ability to rip groomers, crush crud, and absorb vibration like the Z-90's did. Well, this past weekend I finally got on the Endurance 88's and RENOUN nailed it again, VibStop works. Solid, confidence inspiring groomer ripper, and off trail performer all in one! The curve like the Z-90's but feel far lighter, and almost as stable. I found my east coast 1 ski quiver for the next few years.. Nailed it again. I'm a RENOUN convert.
