The Ahmeek 95s are playful yet powerful mid-fat all mountain skis built to crush any condition at the resort. From railing groomers to busting crud to slashing in the trees, they’re up for whatever you are. The hybrid MidLight construction, precision-tuned rocker/camber profile, variable sidecut radius, and 95 mm waist make them ideal for taking on whatever Mother Nature throws at you.

Do you want skis with a wider waist that are still nimble on hardpack? Do you want to take on varying terrain and explore new parts of the mountain but still be able to rip the groomers and crud (and ice when necessary)? The Ahmeek 95s fit the bill.

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

Just like their bigger brother (the Ahmeek 105), the Ahmeek 95s are 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 95s and get ready to take your skiing to the next level.

  • Early Rise 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.
  • Hybrid MidLight Construction combines Ash and Poplar hardwoods for weight reduction without sacrificing pop and energy.
  • Rounded Mini-Cap top edge with full-height UHMW sidewalls are bombproof and look good too.

Custom Ski Graphic Frequently Asked Questions

 

Will you send a proof or preview of the graphics before you make them?

Yes, we always send a proof for any custom graphic prior to printing.

Custom ski photo gallery

View gallery here

Do you offer quantity discounts for custom skis?

Yes! We waive the custom artwork fees for orders over 5 pair (same ski, same length). Contact us for further discounts on orders over 10 pair.

I don't have my graphics ready, can I still order order now?

Yes, we will put your skis into production when you send us your artwork. Feel free to order ahead of time.

I would like a custom illustration or full custom artwork for my graphic, can you do that?

We can set you up with either our graphic designer or send print specs to your preferred artist/designer. The art cost for this starts at $200 and increases based on complexity.

What colors will my ski base be?

They will be the the standard base colors/graphics from the stock version of your ski model. For example - the Ahmeek 105s have one ski black with "blue Shaggy's" letters and one ski blue with black "Shaggy's" letters - so any customized Ahmeek 105 will have that corresponding base. Depending on stock levels, we may be able to do an all black base with different color "Shaggy's" letters - call us at (231)459-4323 to inquire.

      Ahmeek 105 Ski Construction - What makes skis

      Core

      Laminated Ash/Poplar Hardwood: Long grain premium White Ash and 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 below the core, lightweight Triaxial Fiberglass above and beneath the core, Fiberglass 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. A rounded mini-cap top edge rolls over the sidewall to protect your topsheets.

      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.

      Blog Post About How to Size and Pick Skis

      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 effect 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 95 Snow Type Chart

      Are they right for me?
      You want a ski with a wider waist that is still nimble on hardpack, not just a dedicated powder ski. You’re looking to take on a wide variety of terrain and explore new parts of the mountain while still being able to rip the groomers and crud (even ice when necessary).

      What length should I get?
      The Ahmeek 95s have early rise tips and full twin tails. 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 95s as long as the brake width is at least 95mm 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 in 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. [add graphic]

      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: Quick and light in the trees while still powerful enough to lay down trenches on corduroy.

      Design Needs: quick edge-to-edge - whip around trees - rail on groomers and ice - bust chop and float on powder days

      Purpose: Build a one ski quiver that doesn't make you dread the days between storms. Make a ski that is just at home on groomers and ice as it is when exploring new terrain.

      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!

      Custom Ski Graphics

      Want to personalize your skis? Design your own custom graphic and we'll print it!

      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.

      How to Design your Custom Ski Graphic

      • Your custom graphics need to be designed as a rectangle with the dimensions of 16 in wide by the length of the ski plus 10 cm long (ie Ahmeek 180 cm + 10 cm = 190 cm total). This will include both skis as a pair.
      • When designing your custom ski graphic, we recommend you use a graphic program that supports layers such as: Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, CorelDRAW, Corel Paintshop Pro, or if you do not have a graphics program you can use GIMP which is a free open-source program (http://www.gimp.org/).
      • Once your purchase is complete, we will send you a specific model design layout template that you can use for general placement, please remember that there may be slight shifts during pressing and to leave adequate room for that (full bleed to the rectangle)
      • Once you have your basic design done, you should paste the graphic layout provided by Shaggy's into a new layer (top layer) to see how the graphic will look with the ski cutouts and make necessary graphic adjustments. Remember to turn the ski layout layer offprior to exporting the file for print. See image below for reference.
      • The design should be done using the CMYK color space (this is how they will be printed), so if it is designed in another color space the colors may be slightly off. We cannot guarantee perfect color accuracy.
      • The design should be done in at least 150 dpi, but we recommend doing them at 200 dpi.
      • If created using Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator, the source file should be sent directly to us.
      • If a non-Adobe software is used, the files should be exported as a TIFF file, we will provide an upload link to submit the file (they are LARGE).
      • In most instances we will incorporate a small ski information emblem on the skis in an appropriate location near binding placement.

      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.

      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!


      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.

      We use the highest quality materials in our skis to give you the best product.


      Select Cut Northern Michigan Hardwood Cores

      The wood cores are the "hearts" of your skis. At Shaggy's we start out with select cut Northern Michigan hardwood, primarily Ash wood. Ash is an exceptionally snappy and responsive wood with a very high stiffness for it's density. The long grain of the wood that is developed through our bitter cold winters and warm summers gives our cores an unmatched longevity! We also us local Beech and Poplar woods for specific models. The Poplar is used in skis featuring a Pure Carbon construction skis due to it's light nature. We use Beech for a slightly smoother and less poppy ride than Ash. We proudly source our Hardwood from a Matelski's mill right down the street in Boyne Falls, MI.

      Northern Michigan Hardwood for Ski Cores

      Composites

      We utilize a triaxial fiberglass in our standard models to wrap the core and provide both torsional and longitudinal stiffness. The fiberglass is oriented in three directions, the first parallel to the length of the ski, while the second and third orientations run +- 45 degrees to the first. We also use some of the best Carbon Fiber in the industry in our skis. When used to complement the fiberglass, a uni-directional Carbon Fiber strip is placed underneath the core which allows us to reduce the core thickness and reduce weight while adding responsiveness. When used as the exclusive composite (full Carbon) in a model, we use an ultra lightweight biaxial Carbon Fiber (+-45 deg. orientation) coupled with a slightly heavier uni-directional Carbon Fiber. A full Carbon model allows for an exceptionally lightweight, durable, and responsive ski.
      Full Carbon Fiber Touring Ski Layup

      Sidewall Construction

      Impact resistant ABS or UHMW-PE plastic surrounds our cores and is above our edges to absorb impacts and provide smooth, stable edge hold in all snow types. We use a special blend of extra wide ABS plastic that is extremely crack resistant in every environment. We place rubber damping strips between our edges, fiberglass, and sidewalls to reduce vibration propagation and to create a flexible shear bonding layer between dissimilar materials for ultimate durability.

      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.


      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.
