This ski has quickly become my new favorite all-mountain ski. They just rip, and they rip everywhere. An all mountain ski that is wide enough to handle pretty much any conditions, whether it's a foot of fresh or spring park laps, these will go anywhere. I've dropped cliffs, hit tight tree lines, skied knee deep powder, and hit jumps with them, all with confidence that the skis under me won't wash out or be able to handle what I'm about to do. They give you the confidence to become a better skier because you know they can handle anything. If i had to pick one ski to ride for the rest of my life, it'd probably be the Kartel 108. - BWalmer
Characteristics: Super Stable, Surfy Float
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.
