HAGAN Ultra Series Skis

HAGAN Ultra Series skis are exactly what ambitious, athletic skiers are looking for. They are the ultimate all mountain light touring ski. Hagan’s history of producing high performance lightweight touring skis can be felt right away in these skis’ DNA. Short turns, but also fast downhill runs — the Ultra Series are built for both. The Ultra Series are exceptionally light and agile in all snowy conditions! Get off piste and point them straight into the powder. The Ultra Series Skis are sedate in appearance, but exceptionally brash in performance.

No other ski combines the Ultra 76's weight and downhill performance. The Ultra 76 has a curvy sidecut and loves being tilted hard on edge.

  • ULTRA 76

    You won’t be able to stop grinning while skiing the HAGAN Ultra 76. The Ultra 76 delivers precisely what is expected from a high performance alpine touring ski – extreme grip, speed and agility. This is a real carving monster, unflinching in every turn – regardless of radii size. Designed for the most demanding applications of high-alpine mountaineers, the Ultra 76 is also perfect for pleasure seekers and all-rounders who enjoy swinging back and forth between piste and terrain.

    This nimble all-mountain ski feels at home both on the slopes and in variable terrain. The light tour rocker ensures good lift and supports the initiation of quick turns. Carbon stringers run from tip to tail to help reduce chatter and provide a smooth flex. In short, the Ultra 76 is a terrific ski for people who love to go fast. With this performance rocket you get uphill fast and bomb any slope with ease, turning every ski day into a pleasure day. If you ever slow down, the classy, understated graphic design of the Ultra 76 is a real eye catcher on the piste or après-ski. Understated and classy in appearance, over-the-top and brash in performance!.HAGAN Ultra 76 backcountry ski awards

  • Two season's ago the Hagan Cirrus ski was so popular we sold out in February!! So  we discontinued it.

    What? Why? Because we developed a better ski.

    Introducing the new Ultra 76. Long-term Hagan fans will recognize that name. The original Ultra was the seminal light touring ski. It was replaced by the Cirrus, which introduced a wide, rockered shovel for improved soft snow performance and dropped the weight below 1000 grams. 

    The new Ultra 76 combines the best of both. It returns the ABS sidewall from the original Ultra, which adds tremendous durability, edge-hold and downhill performance in hard snow, early morning spring frozen surfaces and other challenging conditions. Now the one knock on ABS sidewalls is that they are heavy. The edge hold and durability are great. The weight not so much. We researched, developed and tested an ingenious solution. First, we engineered "micro-height" sidewalls. Instead of a tall vertical sidewall the entire height of the ski, the sidewall on the new Ultra 76 is only 4mm tall. Full-height sidewalls on downhill skis are fine. On backcountry skis they are superfluous — and heavy. Second, we took that a step further and shortened the sidewall to a 62cm section mid-ski. Mid-ski is the critical section of the ski for edge hold on hard snow and ice, and the most susceptible to edge compression from hard rock and log hits. Hagan's micro-height, mid-ski ABS sidewalls garner almost all the advantage of full ABS sidewalls at a fraction of the weight.

    The Cirrus was loved for providing tremendous float at an incredibly low weight. We took the best attributes from the Cirrus and incorporated them in the Ultra 76. We kept the diamond-profile sculpted surface, which saves weight and directs energy to the edges. We kept the wide shovel and front touring rocker, providing superb buoyancy and exceptional downhill performance for such a light ski. We kept the curvy sidecut for quick, sharp and powerful carving. We streamlined the tip, and added molded Y-shaped tip notch guides for easier, faster, more secure skin attachment. So subtle it isn't apparent in the graphic, the wood core is visible through the semi-opaque top sheet.

    Light skis are especially important to lighter skiers. "Micro-sized" skiers, we added a 148cm version of the Ultra 76 just for you. Now you can get the premium light touring ski in a size appropriate for you.

    No other ski combines the Ultra 76's weight and downhill performance. The energy the Ultra 76 saves on the ascents inspires eagerness to rip the descents! In comparison to the Race (which is designed to be as light as possible and prioritizes stability on the fastest, most direct downhill lines — skimo races are won based on time, not style points) the Ultra 76 has a much curvier sidecut and loves being tilted hard on edge. The Ultra 76 is the ski for athletes who want to climb high and deep into the mountains without foregoing downhill performance — so they can descend anything they encounter with confidence, aplomb and gusto. Used in the first and only winter Hardrock 100!

    Can't believe a ski this small and light can ski that good? Try it. Be prepared for a lot of gushing!
