Launched in 15/16, the R.98 CarbonLite is basically a narrower 98mm underfoot version of the acclaimed R.108 Ranger CarbonLite so if you require a superb access-all-areas all mountain, freeride, touring, mountain guide, ski patrol, ski mountaineering ski but don't require the width of the R.108 then this is the ski for you. Due to its success the 16/17 ski is unchanged apart from the new graphic.  
 
The features of this ski are what make it so special:

- perfect skin track width but still giving great float
- progressive flex rockered tip for float & variable snow foregiveness
- bullet nose profile for crud busting
- minimum camber underfoot for easy pivotting
- stiff underfoot & full length torsional stiffness for great edge hold
- almost flat tail for longer effective edge & for use as a snow anchor
- notched aluminium tail piece for skin clip location & durability
- longish radius for stability & edge hold on steeps
- Whitedot's tried & tested traditional bomber construction
- lightweight for reduced fatigue whether skiing, skinning or boot packing
- equally at home with either alpine, telemark or touring binding
