Decided to go Skiing in Argentina and needed new skis. The staff was wonderful walked through everything on the phone with me and shipped my Ski's that day. Loved it
The Ahmeek's are a great pair of skis for the midwest with occasional trips out west. They handle moderate powder and tight trees with ease, while remaining fun on groomers and mixed midwest conditions. They are much lighter than my previous pair of skis, yet stiff enough to charge through chop! I really like the limited edition graphics as well and the ability to customize the design if desired! This ski has made both my narrower and fatter skis essentially obsolete, and is definitely more fun to ride that both of those!
I bought the 2022 Ahmeek 105's after taking a few runs on a pair of Shaggy's that my brother lent me, and I couldn't have been happier with them last season. I was expecting them to be a good all-mountain skis that made some compromises on differing terrains, but I couldn't have been more wrong. They were a true joy on the long groomers that I rode in Utah. They carve well, and are incredibly controlled when you want to go fast. I didn't get to experience them on a powder day out west, but on the powder I could find they were incredible. I also had a chance to run them through some mixed conditions at Mt. Bohemia, and they made my trip up there one of the most memorable so far. For a pair of skis that are a joy in so many different conditions, I couldn't have asked for anything better.
Like many avid skiers, Ive traveled for years with multiple skis, always dreaming of characteristics that would be desirable in a single ski travel ski. Let’s face it, traveling with multiple skis or even trying to swap out once on the mountain is a pain. I want, no, need, versatility to ski the entire mountain. The Ahmek 105 with nanomag is the ski Ive dreamed of. This ski is FUN. Trustworthy. Predictable until it isn’t (ie fun, see comparison to WRT below). It’s a workhorse and I will be buying the 115 for next season for deeper/storm days.
This is the 5th ski in my current quiver (Stockli AX, WRT, E100, DPS 106 C2). This ski is lighter than the E100 yet nearly as damp and stable at 50 mph plus. It’s got a kick like my WRT (you read that right). Load this sucker up with shorter turns on harder snow and, not only will the edge be there, but you’ll get some out of the turn ( was shocked by this!). It’s reasonably quick in trees and floats well. The tail is there, but releases on demand. Smears and checks back up immediately. It engages in turns at slow speeds (super important for me, I love edging on cat tracks or mellow slopes). It seems to “want” any turn, or turn shape I throw at it. Tip shape/flex remains stable in chop and at speed (yet it is such a light ski, how!?). All this in a 105 waisted ski, insane! I blindly purchased this ski last summer and, for the first time in years, I am not looking for a replacement in this category.
I am 6’4”, 190. Bought the 186, stock layup/core, added nanomag. P14’s OTL. I do wonder what a longer 188-190 version would be like BUT with the blunt nose the effective length/area appears the same as my 190 Wailer 106’s…
