    • Custom skis can take time to complete artwork and design, so order early!
    • Our ski build queue is currently at our production capacity and quality takes time

      The Phoenix 105s are lightweight yet strong backcountry skis that excel in the tightest trees while providing flotation in the fluffiest powder. If you're looking for a pair of powerful, stiff touring skis with plenty of versatility, these fit the bill.

      Are you always hunting for hero powder but also need the versatility to grip on hardpack when conditions change in the backcountry? Do you want to tour on lightweight carbon skis that don’t sacrifice downhill performance? With cores crafted from select-cut Northern Michigan poplar, wrapped with ultralight biaxial carbon fiber, and protected by slanted UHMW sidewalls, the Phoenix 105s are weight-conscious yet durable; light on the skin track and uncompromising on the way back down.

      The Phoenix 105s aren't just lightweight backcountry skis - they're stiff and made to charge downhill. These are the skis that prove Michigan manufacturing is here to stay. Handcrafted in Northern Michigan and skied around the world.

      • 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. 
      • Full-Height UHMW Sidewalls bonded with 8 layers of rubber are bombproof.
      • Clearview Topsheet shows the real carbon fiber in the ski.
      • Notched Tails keep your skins on straight when ascending.

      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.

      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.

          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 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?

          Phoenix 105 Snow Usage

          Are they right for me?
          You want a powerful, stiff backcountry ski that, with a 105 mm waist, will handle it all. You are always hunting for hero powder but also need the versatility to grip on hardpack when the conditions change in the backcountry. You want to get out and tour on a substantial yet lightweight carbon ski. You aren't looking for the lightest ski-mo setup but need a ski that will maximize the downhill as much as much as the uphill.

          What length should I get?
          The Phoenix 105s have early rise tip rocker. If you are between two sizes - you can easily size up for stability if skiing open terrain, if you prefer maneuverability - size down. Check out our size chart in the previous tab for more info.

          What bindings should I get?
          You can use any binding on the Phoeniox 105s as long as the brake width is at least 105 mm wide. We run Marker Kingpin bindings on our demo backcountry 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.

          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: Love the open runs and hero snow, yet are still easy to pivot around tight trees. Light on the way up, stiff and stable on the way down. Definitely more suited towards the backcountry, but can still rail a turn inbounds.

          Design Needs: Lightweight carbon build - substantial flotation in powder - skin notch in tail - camber underfoot for edge grip - tip rocker for maneuverability

          Purpose: Make a dedicated backcountry ski that is built to maximize your fun on the way down in a lightweight pure carbon build. Most skis in this category are built with a weight requirement first, then performance as a secondary - not the Phoenix 105.

          Why You'll Love Them

          1. The Pure Carbon construction makes the swing-weight ridiculously light.
          2. Tapered tips allow the ski to maneuver through the crud and also reduce swing-weight.
          3. The resilience of the Pure Carbon construction maintains flex life year after year.
          4. Notched and slight twin, tech-tail keeps your skins centered and your clips off the snow on the uphill climb.
          5. The 105 mm waist width will keep you floating in powder, yet it's nimble on hardpack and in tight, technical terrain.
          6. Camber pockets molded into the overall camber maximize edge hold on hardpack.

          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.

          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.

          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!

          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.

          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 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!


          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.

          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
