Versatility is the name of the game for the Ahmeek 95. When the snow is hard and icy, this ski provides you with the confidence to hold an edge and link carved turns. But take it into the softer stuff, and it has plenty of capability to cut through crud and slash through the trees. If you want a ski to take off-piste without sacrificing hardpack performance, look no further than the Ahmeek 95.

- Tip rocker maximizes flotation in powder and busts through crud.
- Full twintip tail allows the Ahmeek 95 to maneuver easily in the tightest trees.
- 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 with carbon fiber and lightweight triaxial fiberglass for weight reduction without sacrificing pop and energy.
- Balanced flex allows skiers to charge groomers and big terrain, yet have enough flex in the tip and tail to remain playful across the mountain and float through powder.
- Rounded mini-cap top edge with full-height UHMW sidewalls are bombproof and provide a sleek look.
What length should I get?
The Ahmeek 95 has a rockered tip and a full twin tail. If you are between lengths, size up for a more stable ride, size down for more maneuverability. Check out our size chart for more info.
What bindings should I get?
You can use any binding on the Ahmeek 95 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 are Camber Pockets?
Camber Pockets are additional small sections of camber (about 4" 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 2° side edge bevel and a slight tip/tail detune. The skis are waxed with a universal temperature wax to get you going.
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.
Skier Level: Intermediate | Ahmeek 95 Length: 174cm | Height: 5'10"
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.
Unidirectional carbon fiber strips below the core, lightweight triaxial fiberglass above and below the core, fiberglass binding mat underfoot. Rubber bonding strips placed along edges, sidewalls, and ends for rock solid bonding.
Entropy Super Sap® epoxy contains 28% bio-based content and is specifically designed for skis. It's formulated for high-strength and impact resistance, which creates a durable, tough, and lightweight composite.
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.
Clearview gloss nylon with sublimated graphics and transparent windows to the wood core.

I ordered custom extra light AHMEEK 95's to focus on Backcountry Touring. I acknowledged and expected the weight loss would be at the expense of
groomer performance. The skis perform as hoped for (light, quick, playful, agile) and are surprisingly good at higher speeds on hard groomers here in the North East. It took me a couple of groomer days to get used to them but after eight resort days and one backcountry day, they just seem to get better and better and more fun each time. There has to be some risk in ordering a custom ski but Shaggy did a great job of listening to what I wanted and delivering more than I expected.
As a bonus there's gratification in receiving such a high-quality product from a small US manufacturer!!
It took a year to used to the skis, to really get the best out of them. Great in crud and light pow. After a half a season of keeping them out the gates, I tried them and was very impressed in GS and slalom. I had my best runs on beer league with them. I would not buy them for just gates, although they were admirable. Quick enough in tight bumps to make them fun. I am 5’5” on the 174s and wish I went a fuzz smaller for bumps. Took them to Alta and it dumped up to waist deep. Up to a foot they were fine. Couple feet I had to really lean toward the rear which can be hard for Midwestern souls. Overall a great Midwest all mountain ski. For intermediate skiers, they don’t turn as easily as others. Setting an edge in ice takes some muscle. Once set it rips. Fantastic at high speed on variable terrain. Riva Ridge at Vail, top to bottom these boards absolutely rocked it. Fast, steady, and great on steeps. No regrets with these. If you want to ski fast, hit bumps, tackle some pow, and even race, these might do it for you.
Purchased a pair of 2022 ahmeek 195s. Love them. I ski everything that mother nature gives us and these skis handle it all including deep powder. I learned to ski powder on skinny skis and still will not ski fat boys in powder. I patrolled for 23 years and feel that these skis are the best I have had.
First season on these skis (21/22 Winter) and they rode awesome. I went from old Liberty 105s to the Ahmeek 95s and the transition was worth it. These skis are very responsive and didn't let me down. I primarily ride east coast PA/NY mountains (10 days this year) so I deal with a lot of Crud and Ice and these handled the conditions perfectly. I went to Park City for a week (rode 4 days) and rode these on the groomers/trees and 10" of pow and they tackled every condition wonderfully. The staff at Shaggy's is top tier as well. I have asked questions and they have been able to help every time. Would recommend 100x.
