I don't have a "reviews" section on the website. (It is on my 'to do' list.) In the meantime, reviews and feedback written as "comments" on this blog post are greatly appreciated!

Hagan Ski USA is just me, with a little help from Eva. I don’t have and couldn’t afford a marketing budget minimally approaching that of the other brands. If you like your Hagan skis, please suggest to your friends and acquaintances that they consider them. Word of mouth referrals are my most affordable and most effective way of getting people to consider Hagan. I am glad to help with any questions they may have.

X-race was my second pair of AT skis that I purchased. Initially had some concerns about how they might handle going down the mountain but was amazed at their performance especially at higher speeds and carving turns.
Most recently picked up a pair of Wai-Flows at the recommendation from a buddy from the great state of Tennesseee. He did grow up skiing in Aspen, and on any given day on Ajax is probably the best bump skier on the hill. He travels the world skiing and always has top of the line equipment. So last year when he said the Wai-Fliows were awesome that’s all I needed to hear. Amazingly light and they carved like a dream even on the concrete corduroy. Performance in the rock hard moguls was better than I expected. Can’t wait to try them in better snow conditions. I ended up getting the Chimera skins and was impressed how they just stuck onto the ski for the second lap (-6 degrees when I started). They had a little of that cold powdery snow film layer on them but they suctioned cupped right to base of ski. My other skins would’ve been like bow strings in that cold of temps and given the powdery film layer. Would definitely buy again.

Wanted to drop you a line and let you know how much I am enjoying my new skis. Thank you! The Chimera One skis like a dream. This was a really great recommendation. And the X-Race is incredible too. I have to admit – I was a little nervous going from the Ski Trab World Cup (which I have skied on for many years) to Hagan. But I swear the X-Race is a better ski. Maybe it’s the rocker?

Tips for getting the best performance from Hagan hybrid climbing skins:

Tip 3. If it is quite cold and you have snow crystals on the skins, wipe them across your thigh a time or two to brush off the snow/ice. Because they aren't traditional glue, that quite effectively removes the snow (without sticking to your pants.)

With these tips, you will really enjoy the handling advantages and not needing to store them with plastic foils - ever!

Skintrack recently posted a brief review of the Hagan Ultra 82. 

And... "good impressions 🙂"

"It shines in variable conditions, hard pack, crust and wind affected snowpack - basically, any time when conditions get less than ideal."

Why Wide Skis Aren't Good for Your Knees – or Technique

September 03, 2019 6 min read

Very interesting, if somewhat obvious, research showing the disadvantage of overly wide skis.

The scourge of wide skis hit much harder here than in Europe, which is why lazy “drifting” (promoted as “smearing” - a good thing!! - by companies like DPS) is so evident here. Americans can’t edge their skis!!
How does ski width influence stress? Wide skis are bad for your knees - and technique.
