KAR 147 - The ultimate Backcountry ski KAR IN DETAIL Whether you live close to a city park or by the mountains, OAC KAR gives you the possibility to hike, climb, ski and enjoy the snow. Forget all the hard gear - Ski simply! Kar is our new concept for BC touring. OAC KAR 147 is a skin based ski which combines a Nordic backcountry ski, a telemark/touring ski and a snowshoe. A relatively short and wide ski is elastic and lightweight, due to the unique Braid box construction. e Braid box construction with the compression resistant elastic foam core gives the maximal strength and maximal flexibility to the ski. No matter what kind of snow you are skiing, the tip of the ski floats on top of the snow. At the very same time KAR has good edge control, even in hard packed snow. e short and wide ski is super agile which allows you to have quick and easy turns even in the gnarliest bushes and forests. The KAR has an integrated skin, which is recessed to the base. Because of the skin’s shape & the high quality skin we use, the ski is competent even for freeride skiing at any slope you find. If you like bit smaller dose of adrenalin, you can slower the speed by leaning back and taking the ski of from the fall line. is makes backcountry access possible also for beginners & recreational skiers. By having the recessed, permanent skins you can forget grip wax problems and hassle with packing the skins. Skiing uphill with KAR’s is easy! Assembled with our OAC EA binding, it is easy to use with almost any shoes available. Just step out your door, grab your KAR’s and enjoy the ride!
