- All Mountain On & Off Trail
- Snow Types
- Crud/Variable, Powder, Groomed, Spring Corn, Windblown
- Trees, Open Runs/Trails, Bowls, Moguls, Chutes
- Stiff midbody and tail, moderately stiff tip
The Mohawk 98 is built for demanding skiers that want to rail turns over variable snow types, then charge through the trees and bumps with a strong yet smeary tail.
On trail, its quick turning radius and strong edge grip lets you lay down deep arcs in hard snow. Off trail, ample tip and tail rocker allow you to float in powder and easily smear out of a turn. The Mohawk 98 rewards an aggressive skier with an energetic flex and pop from turn-to-turn. A stiff mid-body and nanoMAG damping keep the Mohawk tracking through crud and chopped up snow with ease.
Milled 3D core pockets reduce swing-weight on this already strong yet svelte ski. Put it all together, the Mohawk 98 delivers a high performance ride anywhere on the mountain.

- Tip and tail rocker maximize flotation in powder and bust through crud.
- Rockered low rise tail allows you to easily maneuver in trees, but is powerful when carving.
- 3D Milled Core Pockets reduce weight while maintaining full height sidewalls over the edges.
- Hybrid core construction combines ash and aspen hardwoods with carbon fiber and lightweight triaxial fiberglass for weight reduction without sacrificing pop and energy.
- Stiff overall flex affords stability at speed and energy coming out of a turn
- nanoMAG® Damping System makes chatter on ice and choppy groomers a thing of the past.
- Rounded mini-cap top edge with full-height UHMW sidewalls are bombproof and provide a sleek look.

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/aspen hardwood: Long grain premium white ash and aspen 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 wood 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.
Unidirectional carbon fiber strips below the core, burly triaxial fiberglass below the core, lightweight (MidLight) triaxial fiberglass above 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.
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, family 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.
As a longtime Shaggy's ambassador, I've been lucky to ski on many pairs of Shaggy's skis. I am very pleased to report that the 2023 Mohawk 98 is the perfect ski to compliment the Shaggy's lineup. This ski is predictable edge to edge, but responsive enough to still be a ton of fun. It rails turns when you want it to, but maintains just enough early rise in the tail to let you break free for those slash turns. The 98mm waist width plays well in all snow conditions, and quickly became my go to ski for almost everything this past season. Light enough to be a backcountry ski, but burly enough to withstand a season of lift accessed laps. The Mohawk 98 excelled just as well on countless east coast variable backcountry days as it did skiing off the summit of Revelstoke in knee deep pow. I've been an avid proponent for both the Ahmeek and the Phoenix models in the past, and while I don't love them any less, the Mohawk 98 currently has my heart. I'm really happy that this ski is no longer a prototype, but more so the next ski for many ripping skiers out there.
