Ski touring gear for kids

Ski touring gear for kids

August 18, 2020 2 min read

I get asked a lot: What gear do you recommend for kids? Especially this year as it looks like there will be high demand for junior alpine ski touring gear as people want to get away from the resorts. Especially if they are closed!!

Here is my answer - 

We now have the Pure 8 Junior binding. The Pure 8 Junior is very light. (About a tenth the weight of the Z02 Junior, and less than half the weight of the somewhat comparable Dynafit Rotation.) So a very good option -

Blister Gear Reviews - Love for the Hagan Core 12 Binding

Blister Gear Reviews - Love for the Hagan Core 12 Binding

November 19, 2018 1 min read

Last spring Blister Gear Reviews put some miles on theHagan Core 12 binding. Some of their thoughts:

  • I felt more confident skiing hard downhill on it than on any other binding in this test.
  • The only binding in this test with independently adjustable vertical and lateral release values in the heel.
  • The heel risers of this binding are easily the best in the group.
  • Its overall performance makes it my favorite binding of the group.
That's just a sampling. Intrigued? Read on.

Wildsnow reviews the Hagan Core/ATK Raider 12 2.0 Binding

April 19, 2017 3 min read

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. 

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.

Glue to use with Hagan bindings including the Hagan Ultra skimo race binding.

What glue should be used when mounting Hagan bindings?

April 12, 2017 1 min read 2 Comments

The purpose of using glue isn't to retain the screws, it is to seal out water. So binding glue doesn't need to be super strong, but should be cold temperature resistant and waterproof.

The all new Y-Ride replaces the initial and ground-breaking Y-Series model, the Y-Flow. The Y-shape is retained with dimensions revised to optimize performance...
