We originally designed the Cleaver for big mountain competition and aimed to keep as much carving power as possible. They feature just a touch of break-away ability in case you need to pull the emergency brake and shut them down in a hurry. But the focus is on the ability to make full, powerful turns, rather than the scrubbing around twin tips or pin tails. We added the Cleaver 88 to capitalize on the powerful turning characteristics of the 102 and 110 on piste. It is a hardpack machine that can help you win your beer league, or carve up the turns of your dreams.
