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)
First Lines, Powder and Steep Slopes: The new HAGAN BOOST skis are light enough for long tours, with 94mm and 99mm waist widths, but are by no means oversized. Tip rockers up to 410 mm provide these off-piste rockets plenty of float for high speed turns.
The Boost skis are built with 3D "diminishing rib" profiles — a raised central ridge that tapers out towards the ski’s edge for a reduction in swing weight. The rib is taller and narrower near the bindings, progressively widening while getting shallower near the tip and tail. The rib shape keeps the skis stiffer mid-foot while absorbing impact without chatter. Tip and tail rocker help float over soft snow and cut through chop, while camber underfoot and carbon stringers provide stability and stiffness, ensuring they rip the hardback. From flotation devices to powerful chargers, welcome to the most playful line of powder skis on the market.
The BOOST 94 is our second widest ski. This very sporty free tour ski unfolds its full potential at high speeds and delivers top-class performance. The tour rocker and wide shovel promise considerable lift in deep snow. It fits into the concept of an adventurous free tour ski – ready at any time to discover hidden powder spots. The Boost 94 is coupled with a lightweight paulownia core and a carbon backbone to keep it nimble while ensuring steadiness for burly descents. The BOOST 94 is light enough for long tours while its 94 mm waist and 127 mm shovel provide stability and security even in difficult snow conditions.
The BOOST 94 is also at home on firmer slopes. It is stable on edge and holds lines securely. This freerider is the tool for adventurers whose exploits guarantee they will experience a wide variety of conditions.
The BOOST series also includes the BOOST 99 and the BOOST JR.
