Hagan Pro Deals

by Michael Hagen January 08, 2019 2 min read

Hagan Ski Mountaineering USA gladly extends pro deals to professional skiers and ski industry employees. Professional skiers include ski instructors, ski patrollers, mountain guides, avalanche center forecasters, mountain search and rescue, and the rare and elusive professional backcountry skier or ski mountaineering racer. Ski industry employees include specialty ski shop employees, ski tuning and maintenance technicians, ski area employees, etc. We have to draw the line somewhere, so, for example, people working in the racket sports sections of REI or Dick's Sporting Goods don't qualify. Sorry.

If you are interested in a Hagan Pro Discount, write a short email to info@haganskimountaineering.com. Include your background and pro qualifications, work phone number and some proof of your current employment status. Photos or scans of ID badges, pay stubs, etc. suffice.

Please also briefly state why you chose Hagan and the specific gear you desire.

I am not participating in the Outdoor Prolink and ExpertVoice/Experticity/Promotive professional discount programs. Participating with them would provide significant marketing value to me, helping to increase awareness and availability of Hagan gear. That is a huge value, but as a very small company, the cost is currently too high. Outdoor ProLink and ExpertVoice charge significant annual set up fees and  commissions on each transaction. By offering discounts directly to industry professionals, I can provide pros larger savings with better responsiveness, personal advice and recommendations, much less hassle and access to the entire Hagan catalog. 

I admire the Outdoor Prolink and ExpertVoice/Promotive business models. I wish I had thought of it first! These online only ecommerce sites charge brands substantial listing fees, get a healthy cut of every sale and, best of all, have NO inventory risk and NO shipping, warranty, repair or customer service responsibilities. Once the IT backbone is set up (which is an expertise I certainly don't possess) electrons flow back and forth and cash flows in. Like I said – Ingenious!! I know it isn't that simple, but believe me, the absence of inventory management alone is a huge migraine saver. The business model is exceptionally clever.

Super Useful Super Grip Crampons

The Super Grip is quite different from normal crampons, including our own crampons. The Super Grip has a much larger surface contact area, but is not as deep. It is also “universal” in that it will work with almost any bindings, and any skis up to 100mm wide. The Super Grip crampon has many uses...
