Product description

Designed as a combination of a Nordic backcountry ski, telemark/touring ski, and snowshoe, the KAR 147 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.

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.

The deeper the snow, the more fun these skis seem to be. Have had them out on the open lake and in to the bush already. They feel stable and are faster than snowshoeing. Bindings seem robust and are easy to adjust to almost any boot. I only wish the winter camo version had been in stock!

The OAC Kar skis were delivered as ordered. I have tried them out and they are great. It would help if the best type of boots were recommended or some guidance given. That was my only issue as I stumbled around looking for the best with a bit of lateral support. Shipment to Canada B.C. was quite fast.
