  • Quality takes time and good things come to those who wait!

The Rundown

Why You'll Love Them

  1. These skis are built to take on anything. From bushwhacking the backcountry to billygoating an windblown ice, the Ahmeek 105s are the skis for when compromising isn't an option.
  2. The 105 mm waist width will keep you floating in powder, yet is nimble on hardpack and in tight, technical terrain.
  3. Camber pockets molded into the overall camber maximize edge hold on hardpack.
  4. Full twintip tails make the Ahmeeks maneuver easily in the tightest trees.
  5. MidLight construction makes the burly construction tour friendly at under 1900 grams per ski (174 cm).

 

New For 2019


For the 2018/19 season, the Ahmeek 105 is the ski that underwent a complete redesign of the construction and camber/rocker profile while maintaining the same, rock solid, sidecut shape. Our goal was simple, lighter, stronger, better flotation, without compromising anything (especially edge grip). 

  • MidLight Construction: weight reduced by over 1/2lb per pair!
  • New Camber/Rocker Profile: increased gradual tip rocker length to increase flotation and maneuverability, maintained camber + camber pockets for edge grip, increased tail early rise to increase maneuverability. 
  • Several Construction Changes: UHMW Sidewalls - bombproof materials for the harshest conditions, increased tip/tail rubber to help with head-on impacts, added edge heat treatment for durability and long edge life.

Ahmeek 105 - Carbon Skis + Wood Skis

Perfectly Mated Sidecut and Rocker

We've optimized the rockered rise of the tip and tail to start slightly before the end of the traditional sidecut. This allows the ski to maneuver faster, ride more predictably, and perform more naturally than anything in it’s class.

The tip rocker profile is perfectly mated with the sidecut length to provide exceptional and hook-free turn initiation. The rocker profile also lets you smear into or out of a turn whenever you want and float in the soft stuff. The camber + camber pockets grip on everything!


Bridging the Gap

Most skis fall into one of two categories, aggressive freeride or playful freestyle. The Ahmeek 105 bridges the gap between the two, allowing for charging hardpack and big terrain, yet having enough flex in the tip to remain playful in all over the mountain and float in the powder.



Now Available in 95 mm, 105mm, 115mm

For the 2019 season, we've extended our Flagship Ahmeek 105 with two new offerings. Now you can get the best characteristics from the Ahmeek in exactly your width.

LOVE DA HOP SKIS!!!!!!

I'm an intermediate skier and usually stick to the groomers but also like to find some fresh powder too. The Ahmeek 105's are the absolute best for me. I LOVE the variation I got with Da Hop Ski design and it really makes it a unique ski on the hill. They are forgiving enough to handle any dumb moves I try to make, but are also spirited enough that if you want a ski that can get going, these can do that too. An all around fantastic ski for my ability and I'm sure will be a delight to those who push the limits more or prefer more advanced terrain. I'm so glad I was directed to Shaggy's by a family member and these are now my FAVORITE skis. You'll love them for sure. THANK YOU to the Shaggy's team for such a great product.

They Dance in Deep Snow and the Tracked Out.

We hit ten days at Bohemia with big snow and the Ahmeeks slayed it. From waist deep to tracked out the Ahmeeks danced through it all with ease. They turn so easily I would suggest maybe going 5 cm longer than you think you might want. I bought a 174 because I ski primarily at Boyne and already have a 184 bootjack. I feel that a 180 would have been maybe a little better at Bohemia.
I let my buddy ski them for a day and he was blown away. He skis a cham 94 and couldn't believe how much more nimble the Ahmeeks were. I also have to give a tip of the hat to the Purder 2. At 184/133 underfoot it pounded and floated and was super nimble for such a big ski wow. I won't be afraid to ski them in the trees again. All in all I've loved every pair of Skis I have from this wonderful company.

Flat out awesome

These are an unbelievable ski. They truly are confidence inspiring. I have had them now on perfect groomers, hard packed ice, crud, some powder, and everything in between. Let me tell you they handle it all with ease. I was a bit nervous going from a "skinny ski" to what I considered a "fat" ski. The 105's lay over and carve with the best of them (if not better). Great super G arcs to quick turns were effortless. Rock solid and stable.

Stunning and limitless!

Let’s start with the obvious, this limited run design is stunning, beautiful, eye catching graphics! Now, I chose mine in the Ahmeek 105 model. True all mountain, all condition skis that set you free to blast through powder holes, slip in and out between trees and carve down icy groomers. The mountain is yours and the options are limitless on the Ahmeek 105.

Ahmeek 105s-best play toy

These skis are incredibly fun and playful! I ride ahmeek 105s and had a custom order. I served in the Peace Corps in Mozambique and as a coming home, had custom skis made to commemorate my service. The custom team did an amazing job turning my chicken scratch design into beautiful skis! Plus, the ahmeeks are so playful!!! Crushes through crud, still holds an edge on groomers and absolutely floats on powder days. I’m having so much fun on these! Thanks, Shaggys, for making my coming home even sweeter!

Carbon Fiber Skis vs Fiberglass Skis - Skis Handmade in the USA


STANDARD LAYUP


Our standard layup construction includes a select cut Ash hardwood core wrapped with triaxial fiberglass and carbon fiber stringers under the core. The carbon stringers are used to increase pop and rebound energy in the ski, while complementing the predictable and torsionally rigid feel of the triaxial fiberglass.

WHICH CONSTRUCTION SHOULD I GET?

The standard layup is best suited for the majority of skiers, it blends the traditional hardwood core with an energetic feel. Skis utilizing this construction perform virtually the same as their Pure Carbon counterpart. Best for all mountain skiing with limited backcountry touring.


NANOMAG® DAMPING SYSTEM LAYUP


This method of construction incorporates a sheet of nanoMAG® magnesium into our Standard Layup that significantly reduces vibration and chatter in the nastiest conditions. The damping of the material increases edge hold and creates an exceptionally smooth ride.

WHICH CONSTRUCTION SHOULD I GET?

The nanoMAG® Damping System is suited for the skier looking for the ultimate in smooth skiing, especially when making high speed turns. This option maximizes grip on ice. Two words to describe this option are "Smooth and Stable". This will slightly reduce liveliness (vs. Standard or Pure Carbon) but gives you that Cadillac Ride!

We press your digital design into a plastic topsheet using the highest quality sublimation inks. During this process the ink actually becomes a gas and permeates into the plastic, actually becoming part of the plastic.

WHICH CONSTRUCTION SHOULD I GET?

The standard layup is best suited for the majority of skiers, it blends the traditional hardwood core with an energetic feel. Skis utilizing this construction perform virtually the same as their Pure Carbon counterpart. Best for all mountain skiing with limited backcountry touring.


PURE CARBON LAYUP


Our Pure Carbon construction includes an ultra lightweight biaxial Carbon Fiber (+-45 deg. orientation) coupled with a slightly heavier unidirectional Carbon Fiber. A full Carbon model allows for an exceptionally lightweight and responsive ski. The exceptionally high strength and stiffness of the Carbon Fiber allows us to use a lightweight Poplar wood core, that is Select Cut in Northern Michigan. For maximum binding screw retention, we mill out the core and place an extra retention plate in the binding area. Average weight savings versus their standard counterpart is 1.6 - 1.8 LB/Pair.

WHICH CONSTRUCTION SHOULD I GET?

The Pure Carbon layup is best suited for the skier looking to often use the ski for backcountry touring where the weight savings allows for more climbing, or someone looking for the lightest ski. Many skiers have reported back that they are able to increase their on-snow time when the conditions are rough, primarily due to reduced muscle fatigue. Skis utilizing this construction perform virtually the same as their standard counterpart, however have a significant weight savings.

*Please note that due to the opacity of Carbon Fiber, skis with this construction will not have "clear windows" into the core as on some models. The windows will instead show the carbon fiber on top of the wood core. Alternatively, and based on availability you may specify to have your graphic printed on a lightweight matte finish white material. Ski graphics with "windows" to see the core, will be white instead.

What is covered? We warrant out product agains defects in materials and workmanship. Basically, we cover your skis as they are in contact with snow. We build with the best materials and durability is paramount, but we cannot cover impacts with non-snow surfaces.

Ever have an issue, just contact us and we've got you covered. Have an issue outside of warranty coverage or smash into some rocks? We'll still help you out, there's almost nothing we can't repair.

Free repairs are available to any of our customers, just get them to us and pay for return shipping (we can get you some good shipping rates).

Frequently Asked Questions

Carbon Fiber Skis vs Fiberglass Skis - Skis Handmade in the USA


STANDARD LAYUP


Our standard layup construction includes a select cut Ash hardwood core wrapped with triaxial fiberglass and carbon fiber stringers under the core. The carbon stringers are used to increase pop and rebound energy in the ski, while complementing the predictable and torsionally rigid feel of the triaxial fiberglass.

WHICH CONSTRUCTION SHOULD I GET?

The standard layup is best suited for the majority of skiers, it blends the traditional hardwood core with an energetic feel. Skis utilizing this construction perform virtually the same as their Pure Carbon counterpart. Best for all mountain skiing with limited backcountry touring.


PURE CARBON LAYUP


Our Pure Carbon construction includes an ultra lightweight biaxial Carbon Fiber (+-45 deg. orientation) coupled with a slightly heavier unidirectional Carbon Fiber. A full Carbon model allows for an exceptionally lightweight and responsive ski. The exceptionally high strength and stiffness of the Carbon Fiber allows us to use a lightweight Poplar wood core, that is Select Cut in Northern Michigan. For maximum binding screw retention, we mill out the core and place an extra retention plate in the binding area. Average weight savings versus their standard counterpart is 1.6 - 1.8 LB/Pair.

WHICH CONSTRUCTION SHOULD I GET?

The Pure Carbon layup is best suited for the skier looking to often use the ski for backcountry touring where the weight savings allows for more climbing, or someone looking for the lightest ski. Many skiers have reported back that they are able to increase their on-snow time when the conditions are rough, primarily due to reduced muscle fatigue. Skis utilizing this construction perform virtually the same as their standard counterpart, however have a significant weight savings.

*Please note that due to the opacity of Carbon Fiber, skis with this construction will not have "clear windows" into the core as on some models. The windows will instead show the carbon fiber on top of the wood core. Alternatively, and based on availability you may specify to have your graphic printed on a lightweight matte finish white material. Ski graphics with "windows" to see the core, will be white instead.

NANOMAG® DAMPING SYSTEM LAYUP


This method of construction incorporates a sheet of nanoMAG® magnesium into our Standard Layup that significantly reduces vibration and chatter in the nastiest conditions. The damping of the material increases edge hold and creates an exceptionally smooth ride.

WHICH CONSTRUCTION SHOULD I GET?

The nanoMAG® Damping System is suited for the skier looking for the ultimate in smooth skiing, especially when making high speed turns. This option maximizes grip on ice. Two words to describe this option are "Smooth and Stable". This will slightly reduce liveliness (vs. Standard or Pure Carbon) but gives you that Cadillac Ride!

Carbon Fiber Skis vs MidLight Fiberglass Skis - Skis Handmade in the USA


MIDLIGHT LAYUP


Our MidLight Construction combines a laminated Ash and Poplar hardwood core wrapped with a lighter Triaxial Fiberglass and twice the unidirectional Carbon Fiber of the standard construction. This construction style reduces the weight of the ski by ~1/2 lb/pair while maintaining all the energetic characteristics of our Standard Ash construction. With the MidLight construction, you get a ski that's on the lighter side of the spectrum, but is rock solid when it comes to charging through nasty variable snow.

WHICH CONSTRUCTION SHOULD I GET?

This is best suited for someone who will be exploring all parts of the mountain and likely doing a fair amount of off-piste skiing where maneuvering a lighter ski is easier. It is also great for a person looking for a daily driver ski that can also be used for backcountry touring.
