The all new Y-Ride replaces the initial and ground-breaking Y-Series model, the Y-Flow. We retained the innovative Y-shape while revising the dimensions to optimize performance. The shovel is slightly narrowed to 128mm and the tail increased to 108mm. The new sidecut increases effective edge length, improving tracking and dampening chatter. Another modification from the Y-Flow is the addition of micro-height ABS sidewalls. This brings both an increase in edge hold and overall performance as well as durability. Carbon layers and a paulownia core keep the surface to weight ratio exceptionally low at just 1200 grams in the 176cm length. All these optimizations give the Y-Ride an even wider range of uses. Available in 4 lengths from 160 to 184cm, the Y-Ride aims to be backcountry skiers go to ski. The Y-Ride is a fantastic all-around ski, confirmed by all our mountain guide and athlete developers. Now you can enjoy the Ride.

Hagan Y-Ride

You can't ski it if you can't get to it. Hagan used its expertise manufacturing super-light race skis to create an all-mountain ski with unmatched surface area to weight ratio, allowing skiers to get to higher and deeper lines with energy to spare.

CARBON TIP STABILIZER
Hagan’s innovative and proprietary carbon fiber ski tip increases stability and greatly reduces vibration. While performance is improved in all conditions, you will especially notice the improved control and smoother ride on hard chattery surfaces.
DIE-CUT-BASE Y[WAI]-SERIES
Graphite race bases create the speed. The Y[wai]-series graphite sintered bases with die-cut inlays are extremely durable and ideally tuned for optimal riding and gliding.
MULTI RADIUS
The pressure and load direction determine the turning radius. Our multi-radius concept allows creation of variable short and long radii on a totally individual basis.
ROCKER
All Hagan ski models are equipped with tip and tail rocker. The rocker length varies amongst models between 250 and 390mm front and 90 to 120mm. Optimized for the ascent, the “tour” rocker height is between 3 and 4mm.
ELLIPTICAL FRONT SKI
We designed an elliptical shape to keep the oversized shovel perfectly manageable in any snow condition and all types of terrain. The elliptical shape surfs untracked powder perfectly, but also carves through breakable crust and difficult conditions with control and precision.
DIAMOND EDGE CAP
The diamond shaped top cap ensures perfect power transmission and reduces swing weight.

Recommended Products

I highly recommend pairing your Y-Ride skis with Hagan custom-tailored 100% mohair Silver Tiger glue or vacuum climbing skins!

Tips for getting the best performance from Hagan hybrid climbing skins:

Tip 3. If it is quite cold and you have snow crystals on the skins, wipe them across your thigh a time or two to brush off the snow/ice. Because they aren't traditional glue, that quite effectively removes the snow (without sticking to your pants.)

With these tips, you will really enjoy the handling advantages and not needing to store them with plastic foils - ever!

"It shines in variable conditions, hard pack, crust and wind affected snowpack - basically, any time when conditions get less than ideal."

Why Wide Skis Aren't Good for Your Knees – or Technique

September 03, 2019 6 min read

Very interesting, if somewhat obvious, research showing the disadvantage of overly wide skis.

The scourge of wide skis hit much harder here than in Europe, which is why lazy “drifting” (promoted as “smearing” - a good thing!! - by companies like DPS) is so evident here. Americans can’t edge their skis!!
How does ski width influence stress? Wide skis are bad for your knees - and technique.
