I got to spin some laps on ON3P's Kartel 98 at the Beartooth summer session and I have to say I was impressed. These skis were super fun, they would be a great all mountain ski for days without too much fresh. I was not able to test them in pow but I would assume based off the dimensions that they would be fine in shallow or denser snow but would probably sink in the good stuff. As a playful crud buster or wider park ski these are awesome. They are stiff enough to charge in the rough but still super playful and fun in the park. I definitely came away wanting more time with the Kartels.
