All new for 23/24, The Vital 98 pays homage to its predecessor by maintaining a predictable, precise, and stable platform. We further optimized its strength to weight ratio and tightened the turn radius for added engagement when you need it most. By slightly increasing the Vital’s tip stiffness and extending the running surface stability has been improved. The inclusion of our SpiralMadeTM binding retention plate creates even flexural properties, while the Algal Core and Algal Wall reduce weight and vibration. An updated tail block improves tail clip retention and easily punches through stubborn layers in the snowpack - a massive benefit to anchor building or tail jab kick turns in steep terrain.

Product Features

  • Rocker Type: Alpine Rocker - Increased rise in the tips allows for increased playfulness and maneuverability while a more moderate rise in the tail creates a solid yet releasable platform for slashing, forgiveness and landing airs.
  • Camber Profile:
    • Camber - for versatility, greater edge contact on piste and a more traditional feel
    • Reverse - for the ultimate in playful, off-piste float, charging and pivotability
  • Flex: Progressive - The tail begins with a medium to stiff flex, transitioning to stiffer through the mid section and decreases gradually toward the tip. This flex pattern creates a solid platform for stability in the tail and underfoot while the medium tip flex handles crud and variable conditions with ease. Due to its narrower width, the torsional stiffness of the Vital 98 is the strongest, allowing for optimal edge hold and stability in variable conditions.
