Newschoolers' Quick Review: The UFO 95 is one of the more different feeling skis I’ve tried for the Roofbox. I actually hated them at first, the flex was very different to most skis I try and the directional shape threw me off. But once I got used to them, they became perhaps my favorite ski of the year as an all-round performer. They definitely wouldn’t be my first choice for a park ski, but I was willing to tolerate that because I liked them so much as a skinny all-mountain jibber.
Overall, I’d pigeonhole the UFO range as all-mountain skis that you can throw tricks on, as opposed to skis like the ARVs, which I’d describe are essentially park/jib skis which still handle all-mountain well. The new shape of the Line Chronic is probably the closest comparison I’ve skied and I really enjoyed those too. The Chronic is better in the park and more comfortable center-mounted, but the UFO is more fun in softer snow (except for slush). Perhaps most importantly for me, I’d say the UFOs had character, they had aspects that made them remarkable where many skis feel much of a muchness. - Twig

ART BY: RYAN SCHMIES
Legendary ski artist Ryan Schmies worked with Lucas on the logo for his movie “Stray Dogs” a few years back so it was a natural next step to have Ryan bring energy to Lucas’ vision for his UFO ski line. Cosmic mountains and Alien abduction... not sure what is going on in the high desert of Oregon but we love it.
