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.
New for 2019, the Kartel 96 introduces our new Hybrid Sidecut - Elliptical Sidecut from Boot Center forward, combined with a standard radius in the rear, result in a ski that carves aggressively when driven, but remains balanced and solid through the turn shape.
Combined with an updated, thinner width, the Kartel 96 is our tried and true option for mixing freestyle 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.
2019 Kartel 96
JACK OF ALL TRADES
New for 2019, the Kartel 96 features thinner dimensions & an updated sidecut profile on a platform that remains the standard for park capable all mountain skis.
Larger tip rocker and tail rocker combined with camber underfoot. More playful, more fun, with enough camber underfoot to maintain a solid edge contact on hard snow.
The sidecut consists of an elliptical arc that begins at boot center and gets progressively smaller as it extends toward the tip and tail of the ski, resulting in a ski that carves harder the more it is put on edge, yet remains stable when skied flat.
Solid underfoot platform with a round, progressive flex into the tip and tail. A close-to-symmetrical flex for performance going both forward & backwards.
