The Kartel 98 is for the park rider who likes to rip some groomers every now and then, or just prefers a wider platform. These skis crush everything from rails to jumps to fresh groomed to tight trees. Wide enough to handle some fresh snow in the morning but narrow enough to spin off rails in the afternoon. The flex is a medium-stiff flex, meaning it will be stable on even the biggest of landings, but the rocker gives it a playful and forgiving feeling as well, so you get the best of both worlds. - BWalmer
I am very glad I pulled the trigger on the 2016 ON3P Kartel 98's. The price tag may scare some people away, but it is worth the outstanding quality and durability of ON3P skis. - Ryhan
This ski is a solid all around ski it is the bees knees in the park with the 98 underfoot and can also rip on the groomers and in the trees. I would recommend this ski to almost every body its not a one trick pony and preforms with every thing you throw at it. -salty

Fast, powerful, and stylish: words that define the scope of our Kartel line. This year, a three ski line-up represents a more focused option for those with jib thinking running through their all-mountain persuasions. Elliptical rocker profile and full length carbon fiber stringers come standard, as does our 100% bamboo core and thick, fast bases and edges. The Kartel 98 returns as our tried and true option for mixing park performance into everything you can find under the lifts. Spins, butters, a bit of fresh snow or laying trenches down corduroy—this is your ride. An updated sidecut improves edge hold on hardpack and switch performance, while a new tip taper improves float and smooths the transition between turns.
