Corduroy, mashed potatoes, crud, ice, powder - you name it, the Belle 90s can handle it. As one of our most versatile women’s models, these truly fit the definition of all mountain skis.

With enough backbone to provide a smooth, confidence-inspiring ride when driven aggressively, the Belle 90s will boost you out of carved turns with impressive energy. But these skis don’t demand full throttle at all times - they can handle a more laid back, slower style just as easily. 

Venturing into ungroomed terrain or off trail? The rockered tip will keep you floating in powder and provide stability confidence cutting through variable, choppy snow. 

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 90 has replaced the Belle 95, nanoMAG is now standard.

  • Ash/Poplar Hardwood Core gives you a smooth and stable, yet energetic ride.
  • Quick Turning Radius and Early Rise Tip Rocker let you dive predictably into turns and float through the crud and powder
  • 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.

Construction

Belle 95 Ski construction - wood core - Durasurf PTEX Base

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.

nanoMAG® Damping System

nanoMAG® magnesium sheets are inlaid into the Ash hardwood cores. The unique characteristic of this material is its ability to dissipate mechanical energy into heat, with increased capacity as the material is moved faster. The faster you ski, the more stable they get!

Composites

Unidirectional Carbon Fiber strips beneath 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, exceptionally durable 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

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

Women's Ski Sizing Chart

What snow conditions are they made for?


Belle 90 Snow usage chart - Groomers, ice, crud

Are they right for me?
You want a versatile all mountain ski that makes you feel at home on groomers and hardpack but isn’t afraid to get spicy in crud, bumps, and powder. The more traditional mounting position and flat tail will remind you of a race ski, but the added width and lighter weight make for a model that can hold its own anywhere on the mountain.

What length should I get?
The Belle 90s 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 90s as long as the brake width is at least 90mm wide. We run Marker Squire bindings on our women's demo skis. Visit your local ski shop for bindings and mounting.

What can I customize?

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.

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: Confidence inspiring grip on the groomers and ice, but versatile enough to take on some morning powder. Easily breaks through the variable crud.

Design Needs: Strong grip on hardpack - quick edge-to-edge and stable - versatility in all snow types

Purpose: Build a rock solid women's all mountain ski that can be used in any condition.

Why You'll Love Them

  1. They're so stable and solid, yet light and nimble. It's like an instant ability upgrade.
  2. When the snow gets chewed up, the 90 mm waist width will blast through the crud like it's not even there.
  3. The early rise rockered tips keep you floating in the powder and make the skis more maneuverable.
  4. The flex pattern is optimized specifically for women to charge. It's not just a downsized ski.
  5. Camber pockets molded into the overall camber maximize edge hold on hardpack.

WOW!

After not being on skis last year due to a severe non-ski related injury, my first time out on my 2021 Belle 90s was incredible! Very responsive, glided through variable terrain with ease, and Northeastern hardpack’ was a piece of cake! My Belle 90s make skiing in tough conditions very comfortable! Love them so much I’m already planning custom graphics for my next pair! Thanks Shaggys!!!! You all do a wonderful job!!!

I’ve owned a lot of skis and these are by far the best skis I’ve ever owned. If you are hesitating to buy them, bite the bullet and just do it! I promise you will love them.

Great on all terrain

I got the new 2018 Belles this year for my birthday and can't say enough about them. I've been riding them around the Northern Michigan and UP hills in all types of weather and snow conditions and these skis can handle anything. I took them out to Squaw Valley and Mount Bohemia for the holidays for backcountry trips with friends, and while they're not specifically backcountry skis, they were great for trees! After years of racing I wanted a ski that would hold a good edge in the super variable Michigan conditions but still be good for trees and powder out west, and I found that in the Belle! Great all around ski!

BEST SKIS EVER!

This past ski season was the first season on my Belle's and, to be quite honest, probably my best season on skis ever and I've been skiing for over 50 years!! When I first demo'd them, I knew after just a few runs, that I was in LOVE! These ski perform in everything...They truly are an all mountain ski. I skied Winter Park, CO this year and my Belle's did not disappoint! From the groomers to the famous Mary Jane Territory, my Belle's were eager to take me where ever I wanted to go! A trip to Banff in Alberta, Canada the end of March was enhanced by the daily dumping of fresh snow...powder? No problem for my Belle's! I truly LOVE these skis! I will never rent or travel without them, because I know that they will perform every single time, no matter the conditions. I'm so happy I own a pair of these magic skis...the magic is added sometime during the building process...Maybe it's because they are Michigan Made...and you can't get any better than that!
