Kick-turn is considered a basic skill for skimo racing. Let’s take a look at two variations of a kick-turn, at normal speed and in 4x slow motion. How to best practice kick-turns check out our Manual e-book on the link below.

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.
