The ISMF White List is a list of products relevant to competitive ski mountaineering – provided by various manufacturers that are member of the ISMF Manufacturersâ€™ Pool. Each product is self-certified by the manufacturer to fit within ISMF Sporting Regulations. Therefore when a skier looks at the ISMF White List, he/she knows that the products are suitable for use in ISMF races.
Items that do not appear on the list are not necessarily outside of the guidelines; this just means that the manufacturer has chosen not to participate in this initiative, therefore the validity of products not listed should be checked directly with information provided by the manufacturers. In any case, the equipment used in ISMF competitions must comply with the ISMF Sporting Rules.
Geometries and carbon lamination of the shell and cuff are designed to minimize weight (only 520 grams) and volumes: the new tapered shape is extremely compact, direct and precise on the ski, allowing maximum control of the movements and perfect power transmission. Reinforced ribs and bulletproof anti-breakage inserts reduce vibration of the shell to a minimum for high performance skiing. Compared to previous models in the Stratos Series, Hi-Cube further develops the construction of the heel thanks to the compact Spur-Heel Construction ™ which provides greater resistance while leaving the heel free thus making it compatible with all types of crampons.
