Montanges Magazine

I don't read French (my German is fair), but I know how to use web translators. According to the inter web, this is what the French Montagnes Magazine said about the Hagan Boost 94: (excerpts, click the link below to read the entire review in French)

  • The Big Surprise of this Season
  • excellent stability even at high speeds
  • A model that is not unlike the behaviour of the Salomon Explore 95 but with greater rigidity.
  • This ski becomes our favourite of this 2020 range
  • slips very clearly in the first place of these tests.
  • enormous carbon-filled shovel erases all the roughness of the terrain 
  • unparalleled driving comfort in deep or trafficked snow
  • turns are easy to make

Read the original article here: https://www.montagnes-magazine.com/ski-randonnee-2020-hagan-boost-94

Or if your French is as stellar as mine, the entire inter web translated article (some of the translation is a little rough, but I think you get the idea) is:

"A worthy successor to the Himalayas?"

Let's start at the end: this Boost 94 is the big surprise of this season! It loses 3 mm in width compared to the old model but becomes a completely different ski. We already liked the Boost 97, here it is the superior dimension. By agreeing to fly a hair less deep with a ski width a little narrower, we find a ski of a rare stability. A safe, very catchy ski that shows qualities both on steep slopes and on firm, regular or irregular surfaces with excellent stability even at high speeds. A model that is not unlike the behaviour of the Salomon Explore 95 but with greater rigidity. Its reactivity is excellent and mounted with light fixings (ATK Trofeo for example) [my note, the Hagan Ultra is a lighter version of the ATK Trofeo], it will form a formidable unit whose only downside will be the lift a hair just in the big powder. This ski becomes our favourite of this 2020 range with a behaviour close to our referent Elan Himalaya and slips very clearly in the first place of these tests. Come on, a little reproach anyway: why the hell did you remove the spatula notch for skins present on the previous model?

An excellent ski on all points.

Complete overhaul of the Boost range for next season with the arrival of a brand new Hagan Boost 94. Keeping its freerando DNA, it gains in climbing comfort with a more supportive edge grip and a smaller lever arm. On the way down, it's simple: nothing to change. Its enormous carbon-filled shovel erases all the roughness of the terrain and gives it unparalleled driving comfort in deep or trafficked snow. Despite its size, the turns are easy to make and you can even have fun playing between the trees. A ski for intermediate skiers looking for a first wide ski.

That's not the only award the Boost 94 has received. And I'm too small to ship skis all over the place, so most reviewers never got the pleasure. Read more about the Boost 94 here.

The Marker Alpinist is a well known binding that some compare to the Hagan Pure 8 and Pure 10 bindings because they are all considered to be in the lightweight ski touring binding category. Here are some advantages of the Pure 10 versus the Marker Alpinist. 
  • Lighter
  • Better retention/release
  • Adjustment

Here is a recent conversation that started asking how the Hagan Off Limits compares to the Altai Hok (no comparison). In the last paragraph there is a question about sand skiing with the Hagan X-Trace Pivot binding.
