      The Ahmeek 105s are mid-fat all mountain skis with an oversized appetite for adventure. Whether you're scouting fresh powder lines or ripping corduroy on the frontside, the Ahmeek 105s are right at home. The lightweight pure carbon construction, precision-tuned rocker/camber profile, variable sidecut radius, and 105 mm waist make them ideal for taking on whatever Mother Nature throws at you.

      The three models of the Ahmeek collection bridge the gap between aggressive freeride and playful freestyle. They allow skiers to charge groomers and big terrain, yet have enough flex in the tip and tail to remain playful across the mountain and float through powder.

      The Ahmeek 105s are in a league of their own. Powerful yet playful; light yet substantial. They'll take you wherever you want to go. Ready to shoot into the trees? Easy. Want to rip a groomer? Done. Only want to travel with one pair of skis? Grab the Ahmeek 105s and get ready to take your skiing to the next level.

      • Tip Rocker maximizes flotation in powder and busts through crud.
      • Camber Pockets molded within the overall camber triple the turn initiation contact points for maximum edge grip on hardpack.
      • Pure Carbon Construction* combines an ultra lightweight biaxial Carbon Fiber (+-45 deg. orientation) coupled with a slightly heavier unidirectional Carbon Fiber and a Poplar hardwood core to create an exceptionally lightweight and responsive ski. 
        *Please note the clear windows in the ski graphic will show carbon fiber rather than wood, as carbon is opaque.
      • Rounded Mini-Cap top edge with full-height UHMW sidewalls are bombproof and look good too.

      Pure Carbon Construction

      Pure Carbon Ski Construction - What makes skis

      Core

      Laminated Poplar Hardwood: Premium Tulip Poplar is hand selected and cut into full length strips. Strips are individually flex indexed and laminated together symmetrically. Each laminated core is CNC milled to a precise thickness profile developed for each model and length.

      Composites

      Unidirectional Carbon Fiber strips above and below the core, ultra lightweight Biaxial Carbon Fiber above and beneath the core,  binding mat underfoot. Rubber bonding strips placed along edges, sidewalls, and ends for rock solid bonding.

      Sidewall

      Full height UHMW - the same raw material as your base, bombproof and double chamfered for reduced swingweight.

      Topsheet

      Clearview gloss Nylon with sublimated graphics and transparent windows to inside the ski. 

      Base + Edge

      1.4 mm CNC Knife Cut 4001 Race Grade Durasurf sintered UHMW. 2.2 mm over-sized and heat treated edges take a beating. Please note, Base colors are swapped every other pair (black into blue, blue into black).

      Here's a basic chart to get you started:

      Ski Sizing Chart


      Sizing skis is a little bit of an art and a little bit of a science. There are numerous factors that all affect the optimal ski length for you. 

      A few of the factors are:

      • Skier size and weight
      • Skier ability (experts size up, beginners size down)
      • Type of terrain you like
      • Where you normally ski
      • Current ski size

      The list could go on and on, but if you need help with the decision, always feel free to call us at 231.459.4323, live chat, or email us!

      What snow conditions are they made for?
      Ahmeek 105 Snow Usage - Powder - Crud - Trees - Groomers

      Are they right for me?
      You're looking for one ski that can do it all with confidence. The one pair to grab - whether a storm just rolled through or you've been skiing the same crud for the last two weeks. You want to adventure to new parts of the mountain and possibly head into the backcountry. You want a ski with unmatched versatility, because you never know what you might find next!

      Should I choose the Carbon or MidLight (stock) version?
      The Carbon version is great for backcountry skiing including uphill touring with it's reduced weight. For a daily driver the MidLight construction is a bit better suited due to better vibration absorption. The reduced weight of the Carbon construction is beneficial for the person looking for the lightest setup. The most notable difference between Midlight and Pure Carbon is a large reduction in swingweight.

      Ahmeek 105 - MidLight

      What length should I get?
      The Ahmeek 105s have tip rocker and a full twin tail. If you are between lengths, size up for a more stable ride, size down for more maneuverability. Check out our size chart in the previous tab for more info.

      What bindings should I get?
      You can use any binding on the Ahmeek 105s as long as the brake width is at least 105mm wide. We run Marker Griffon bindings on our demo skis. Visit your local ski shop for bindings and mounting.

      What can I customize?
      Graphics: Full custom topsheet graphics 
      Construction: Get a consultation

      What are Camber Pockets?
      Camber Pockets are additional small sections of camber (about 4" long and 0.030" tall) molded into the overall camber of the ski in front of and behind your midsole position. They increase contact pressure to improve grip on hardpack and ice.

      Are they tuned and waxed?
      Skis come tuned with a 1° base edge bevel and a 3° side edge bevel and a slight tip/tail detune. The skis are waxed with a universal temperature wax to get you going.

      The Rundown

      Ride Notes: Burly, nimble, light - but not too light - it busts crud with ease and rises up in powder.

      Design Needs: Float in deep powder - whip around trees - rail on groomers like a narrower ski.

      Purpose: Build one ski to do everything but make the most of a day when the powder is fresh. Make the one ski that you can stash in your car and not need to worry about what conditions are like.

      AHMEK 105 /Single Quiver Western Ski

      Like many avid skiers, Ive traveled for years with multiple skis, always dreaming of characteristics that would be desirable in a single ski travel ski. Let’s face it, traveling with multiple skis or even trying to swap out once on the mountain is a pain. I want, no, need, versatility to ski the entire mountain. The Ahmek 105 with nanomag is the ski Ive dreamed of. This ski is FUN. Trustworthy. Predictable until it isn’t (ie fun, see comparison to WRT below). It’s a workhorse and I will be buying the 115 for next season for deeper/storm days.

      This is the 5th ski in my current quiver (Stockli AX, WRT, E100, DPS 106 C2). This ski is lighter than the E100 yet nearly as damp and stable at 50 mph plus. It’s got a kick like my WRT (you read that right). Load this sucker up with shorter turns on harder snow and, not only will the edge be there, but you’ll get some out of the turn ( was shocked by this!). It’s reasonably quick in trees and floats well. The tail is there, but releases on demand. Smears and checks back up immediately. It engages in turns at slow speeds (super important for me, I love edging on cat tracks or mellow slopes). It seems to “want” any turn, or turn shape I throw at it. Tip shape/flex remains stable in chop and at speed (yet it is such a light ski, how!?). All this in a 105 waisted ski, insane! I blindly purchased this ski last summer and, for the first time in years, I am not looking for a replacement in this category.

      I am 6’4”, 190. Bought the 186, stock layup/core, added nanomag. P14’s OTL. I do wonder what a longer 188-190 version would be like BUT with the blunt nose the effective length/area appears the same as my 190 Wailer 106’s…

      Awesome for Everything

      Replaced my old center mount Line Blends with Ahmeek 105s this year. I mounted Marker Griffon bindings 3.7cm forward from the suggested mount point to get a more centered feel to rotate in the air. They worked fantastic in all ways. They're a little fat for groomers but doesn't matter, they handle great. They also are great for skiing switch. They have great grip on ice and handle powder and trees like a champ. They have great balance in the air and are very nimble. I skied my local groomers along with powder, ice, and trees (and rocks) in Winter Park and Breck. Also skied trees, cliffs, powder and ice at Bohemia. It's awesome having skis recognizable as midwestern skis, I recieved a lot of compliments. These skis rip!

      True all mountain, all condition ski!

      I purchased my Ahmeek 105's July of 2021 and outfitted them with LOOK pivot bindings. I never had a chance to demo the skis before purchase so I primarily went off of previous reviews and the blister review posted on the skis.

      Needless to say after a few michigan weekend trips and a week trip out to Idaho I am 100% sold on this ski. I am every impressed on how the ski handles in all conditions. On my trip to idaho we had conditions ranging from spring corn to 5-6" of fresh to hard groomers at the end of our trip. It handled all conditions with ease. The ski charged through the ungroomed chop and was a riot to hop off of the runs into the trees and glades. I was very impressed with the skis frontside groomer performance, and the versalitity to go anywhere on the mountain and not worry about swapping skis.

      Awesome ski for all conditions, Thanks Shaggys!

      Surprisingly nimble

      I recently moved to the up so I got some powder skis having my old race skis for the groomers but I took them out on the groomers and I was able to carve really well which I was shocked by I love them they work really well.

      Fantastic Skis

      I was a bit hesitant about buying a ski from a small ski company but I am so happy I did, the customer support was outstanding and the ski buying and customizing processes where painless.
      The skis themselves both look and ski great, they are truly an all around ski that is the perfect blend of a aggressive and playful ski.
