It has taken a lot time and effort, but today I am launching a new website and online store. My previous website, created by Paolo Amarena, was very nice, but I felt that it is essentially imperative today to include an online store with the website. I encourage you to support your local Hagan retailers. However, it is true that Hagan makes the world's largest collection of backcountry skiing gear: skis, bindings, poles and skins. New this year is our first alpine ski touring boot — the Core TF and ST! No single retailer carries all of them. If your local retailer doesn't carry a particular item, contact me.
The website is still rough around the edges, with a lot of work remaining. Please contact me if something on this website doesn't function properly or if you have suggestions.

Lou Dawson at Wildsnow tested and positively reviewed the ATK Raider 12 2.0 all mountain touring binding, which Hagan is making available in the U.S. and worldwide as the Hagan Core binding. The Hagan Core is blue and black to match the Hagan Core alpine touring boot and Hagan Core series of skis. (In my humble opinion, the Hagan Core looks better than the ATK Raider 12 2.0, but that is personal preference.)
There is a lot more effort and expense to "making available" than simply changing the colors — including insurance (a huge expense), distribution, warranty and service support — but that is a subject for another blog post.

The Hagan Core binding is an entirely new binding from Hagan, designed in conjunction with ATK and a significant improvement on the ATK Raider 12. The Hagan Core is a high performance Freeride and All Mountain touring binding. While specifically designed with our Core series skis in mind (with colors that match beautifully), the Core will also work superbly with our Boost freeride skis and Ride tour classic skis.
