WHAT IS THIS SKI????
It’s so new it doesn’t have a name yet!
What IS this ski? A huge powder inspired 152 mm rockered tip - an 88 mm frontside friendly waist - and a race inspired stiff flat tail…
Until we name it, we’re calling it the Fun Carver 88. It’s the only name that does it justice. Or maybe we should just call it the reverse mullet - party in the front, business in the back.
This ski will make you a better skier and people on the chairlift will turn their heads in awe as you rip immaculate slalom turns on a ski with a 150 mm + tip!
If you want to make every vertical foot count with tight turns, then hop off the trail in fresh pow - there’s only one ski you want - and it’s this one! It’s weird, funky, and kind of confusing to look at - but the sh!% eating grin on your face after your first run will tell the whole story.
This isn’t a one ski quiver - it’s different. It’s the ski that compliments your true All Mountain skis, (like the Ahmeek 105s you probably already have).
This is the Fun Carver, it’s extremely easy to initiate those high-G tight slalom inspired turns with the energy and pop of a one year old Siberian Husky. With a moderate flexing tip and rock solid tail, this ski is the whole package, even when you want to let it run medium-to-large radius turns.
And now on to the technical jargon...
Full ash hardwood core - for maximum snap and pop
Full width biaxial carbon fiber for increased torsional stiffness = more grip
nanoMAG Damping System to reduce chatter and vibration on hardpack snow
Rockered tip for easy turn initiation and the blast through powder/crud/variable snow
Traditional camber underfoot for immediate edge grip
Stiff flat tail for rocket-like energy coming out of a turn - but it’s still easy enough to break out of a turn

What length should I get? Easy - the pre-production model is only available in a 174cm length - get that one!
What bindings should I get? You can use any binding on the Fun Carver 88 as long as the brake width is at least 88mm wide. We run Marker Griffon bindings on our demo skis. Visit your local ski shop for bindings and mounting.
What can I customize? Most stuff in the future, but for now, the Fun Carver is the way it is - with a cool prototype topsheet graphic.
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.
Laminated ash hardwood: Long grain premium white ash lumber 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 create 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 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.
Every single pair of Shaggy’s is built at our small, wholly owned ski factory in Boyne City, Michigan. We source all of our materials as locally as possible and take no shortcuts during the build process, using the most modern equipment and methods to carefully craft our skis.
Cutting-edge technology, premium materials, and limitless customization are worthless if the end product isn’t built with passion. A love for skiing is a prerequisite for each and every employee at Shaggy’s. We design, prototype, and test every ski model before it’s made available to you, and that passion for skiing is clearly evident in our end product.
That exacting detail doesn’t end with your new skis; your experience as a customer is paramount to us as well. Our team is always happy to offer assistance - before, during, and after your ski purchase. Find out for yourself why we refer to our customers as the Shaggy’s Family.
