The Boost 99 from Hagan Skis convinces not only in weight, but also in handling characteristics. It is a good choice especially for women because it is stable and easy to turn.

World Ski Test Core 89
TEST WINNER in the category touring ski "Men 1”!
"The Hagan was able to fully convince in all categories at its first participation to the touring World Ski Test. The "Core 89" was the non plus Ultra for all. If you look at the reviews, not much needs to be said. This ski can do it all. Congratulations and our recommendation: BUY!"
World Ski Test Core Lite 84
“TEST WINNER at the ladies touring skis! Congratulations – to win right at the premiere! With the rating "excellent", the "Hagan Core Lite 84" stands out from the competition. If you look for weaknesses, with this ski, you will not find it. Extremely good ratings from all testers. Both in skiing and handling of the Hagan skins they speak for themselves. Our tip: Absolute buy recommendation!"

"Also in the category in which the wide models were tested, the Hagan fully convinces. In addition to it's good skiing results, the very good and easy handling of the skins. The interesting and trendy look of the ski are outstanding. Also the very fair price is another factor that speaks for the purchase.”
