Product description

Updated version of greatly loved OAC Kar 147 ski. 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.

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.

  • OAC Braid box construction
  • Compression-resistant elastic foam core
  • Patented OAC Unicoat skibase
  • ABS reinforcements in base tip and tail
  • Integrated high quality Mohair-mix skin
  • ALU/GF reinforcement at binding area
  • Steel edges
  • Made in Finland by OAC Tech

Seems very good after the first try

Now, after twenty kilometers in the woods, I can already tell firsthand how easy it is to go on hilly terrain and of course you can also get there on flat terrain. The grip is incredibly good and is enough for fairly steep climbs. Counting is also fun and easy, as long as there is even a few centimeters of snow. You can slide in every direction on the ice surface, but ice skates are for ice.

It works well both in more immersive snow and when there is a little bit of soft snow on top of a hard base. On a completely hard surface, you tend to slide sideways and the edges don't bite very well. But for "snowshoe" use, as its name suggests, it works well and the going is smoother than with actual snowshoes, because there is still some skiability. There are also cross-country skiing features along the prepared piste for a leisurely ride. With short skis, turns go smoothly even in a dead end. Commissioning is easy, only one screw needs to be screwed. Quality product, good purchase.

Are these good skis or snowshoes? I hope the bandages will last even in severe frosts.

A great way to move in snowy terrain. Carry even in soft snow as well as hunting skis, but the shortness makes them more agile in dense terrain. On hard-packed snow, my skin slows down a bit, but on softer snow, you don't even notice it sliding. The bandages fit snugly and are easy to use. It is easy to go down small hills, but the shoe must then be reasonably supportive of the ankle.

Online store with super fast delivery!! January weather, a freezing hanki with a bit of powder on top. OAC skis are particularly slippery. The material of the sole and the edge of the edge are not on the same level, so the ski does not have to be held sideways. I miss walking in the forest. The base of the hair does hold back well. I really had to go to the store to make sure I didn't have the wrong product. There were similar ones there too. Quite a difference to the Altai skis, which do not slip to the side.
