Reviews of Hagan Products

by Michael Hagen December 30, 2015 2 Comments

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?

Y-King and vacuum skin review
Y-King and vacuum skin review

by Michael Hagen June 21, 2017

First I want to thank you for your assistance and advice while buying the Y-King skis and the Vacuum Skins. Second I want to tell you how much I like both. Everyone is jealous when they see how easy the skins come apart or off my skis. Makes for a much more enjoyable day out. I also like how I can wash them off in the sink and dry them out and they are ready to go the next day.....

Wildsnow reviews the Hagan Core/ATK Raider 12 2.0 Binding
Wildsnow reviews the Hagan Core/ATK Raider 12 2.0 Binding

by Michael Hagen April 19, 2017

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.

Announcing the Hagan Core freeride ski touring binding!

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.
