Ultra 82 Ski
At two pounds per plank, the Hagan Ultra 82 Ski is an ultralight option for ski mountaineering. It's light and nimble for technical ascents, and as the second-widest ski in Hagan's Ultra collection, it can still handle a rowdy downhill. Carbon stringers stiffen up the ski so you can gain some speed down tight, steep couloirs, and there's plenty of camber underfoot when you want to edge your way down, even when the couloir is icy. Hagan rockered the tip ever so slightly to ease turning if you score some softer snow at higher altitudes. The ski has a light paulownia wood core encapsulated in ABS sidewalls for extra durability. The tip and tail do not have sidewalls to reduce weight and enhance swinging.
- Ultralight ski designed specifically for mountaineering
- 82mm waist shaped for firmer snow commonly found on summits
- Lightly rockered tip helps navigate more variable snow
- Camber underfoot can hold an edge on straight ice
- Carbon stringers amplify stiffness without adding much weight
- Sidewalls underfoot add durability and easy-to-tune convenience
Recommended Sizing Guide
Your ski size is largely determined by both your skiing ability and your preferred style of skiing. For example, an expert skier in Vermont will ski a far different ski than an expert in British Columbia. So take a look at our chart and explanations and find your perfect fit. Your weight also plays a large factor in finding the right ski. If you are either under or over average weight for your height consider downsizing or upsizing, respectively.
