The Blackout Ahmeek 105 is the first installment of The Factory Collection. These Ahmeeks are built with a hybrid Ash/Poplar hardwood core for weight savings and a carbon mesh woven around triaxial fiberglass for maximum energy.

The camber/rocker profile is changed from standard, featuring more rocker in the tip, and an early rise tail profile to whip around in the nastiest snow.

We're only building 6 pair of these, they're not for everyone - but they might just be exactly what you need. 

Dimensions: 139-105-124


What's Different? 

  • Increased tip rocker length and a slightly softer shovel flex for added flotation and playfulness (tip rocker: 42 cm @ 180 cm)
  • Slightly increased tail early rise rocker for maneuverability in trees (tail rocker: 26 cm @ 180 cm)
  • Ash/Poplar hybrid core with carbon mesh to reduce weight
The Idea/Inspiration 
We wanted to make an Ahmeek that floated better and had even more maneuverability in the trees and was a bit more playful. While they're not quite as powerful as the stock 2018 Ahmeeks, they are perfect for chasing snow into the trees, and having fun all over the mountain. Only 6 will ever be built and each pair is individually numbered!

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!

Carbon Fiber Skis vs Fiberglass Skis - Skis Handmade in the USA

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.
