Product description

Designed as a combination of a Nordic backcountry ski, telemark/touring ski, and snowshoe, the KAR 149 provides unmatched versatility and is a backcountry one-ski quiver.

Its broad width and steel edges make it equally at home on any type of snow, from hardpack to powder. Thanks to its short length, the KAR is super agile, allowing for turns in even the gnarliest of bushes and forests.

The best selling ski comes now with revolutionary patented Unicoat technology. Unicoat is a tough and easy to care ski base construction, which we have invented. the use of latest composite materials, manufacturing methods and extensive field testing has resulted this tough and easy to maintain base. is base absorbs the liquid waxes, so you can forget about the hot iron and time consuming waxing procedure. Unicoat base is very durable but in case of damage really easy to repair. A new tip and tail design provides more float and better tracking, while the seamlessly integrated ABS base reinforcements increase durability in high-wear areas.

The KAR UC has an integrated skin, which is recessed to the base. Because of the skin’s shape & the high quality skin we use, the ski is competent even for freeride skiing at any slope you nd. If you like bit smaller dose of adrenalin, you can slower the speed by leaning back and taking the ski of from the fall line. is makes backcountry access possible also for beginners & recreational skiers. By having the recessed, permanent skins you can forget grip wax problems and hassle with packing the skins. Skiing uphill with KAR’s is easy. Assembled with our OAC EA binding, it is easy to use with almost any shoes available. Just step out your door, grab your KAR’s and enjoy the ride.

I installed Voile Mountaineer bindings on my skis and have skied in the soft deep snow and so far only small pebbles. So far, the landing features feel great. Surprisingly good for carrying. In fresh snow, the coat slips on steeper inclines. The glide is also a little worse than I expected. I had no previous experience with their counterparts. I would definitely recommend a try if you are interested in cross-country skiing in hilly landscapes!
