nanoMAG® Damping System
13m @ 156cm
Early Rise Tip/Camber
The Belle 80s are the ultimate frontside cruiser skis. With a moderate flex, light weight, and nimble feel, they’re at home carving quick turns on groomers, ice, and hardpack. And when you find yourself in uneven crud, they’ll cut through it like a champ.
Turn initiation feels effortless on the Belle 80s - just roll your ankles and let them do the rest. With no shortage of grip, they’ll hold an edge on any kind of snow you lean them into. And the light, responsive ash & poplar core wrapped in carbon fiber and fiberglass makes for an incredibly quick edge-to-edge feel.
Now standard across our Belle lineup, the exclusive nanoMAG Damping System reduces vibration and chatter on ice without sacrificing the lively feel you’re looking for.
New for 2021: The Belle 80 has replaced the Belle 85, nanoMAG is now standard.
Ash/Poplar Hardwood Coregives you a smooth and stable, yet energetic ride.
Quick Turning Radius and Early Rise Tip Rocker let you dive predictably into turns and easily through the crud
Camber + Camber Pockets underfoot provide exceptional edge grip on hard snow and ice
- Rounded Mini-Cap top edges with full-height UHMW sidewalls are scratch resistant and look good too.

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.

Please make sure when artwork is complete to turn off the template/ski shape layer before submitting it (your artwork must extend past the edge of the skis).
What snow conditions are they made for?
Are they right for me?
They're right for you if you want an easy riding, quick turning all mountain frontside ski that works just as well in variable snow as it does on the groomers. You enjoy quickly rolling from edge to edge and carving short to medium radius turns.
What length should I get?
The Belle 80s have slight early rise tip rocker and a partial rise tail. If you are between lengths, size up for stability or size down for maneuverability.
What bindings should I get?
You can use any binding on the Belle 80s as long as the brake width is at least 80mm wide. We run Marker Squire bindings on our women's demo skis. Visit your local ski shop for bindings and mounting.

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.
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.
