January 06, 2020 4 min read

A HIGH PRECISION RACING MACHINE.

The Ultra 65 is a proven 100% race ski with super edge grip for consistent carving. HAGAN's proprietary micro-ABS sidewalls mean superior durability, dampening and vibration filtering for superior downhill performance. No other race ski has it. Even at the highest speed and ultimate edge angles this incredibly light ski dices its way securely through the snow. The edge grip is brutally good, the entire ski dynamic and full of spark.
