CORE 88 2018
Hagan Core Series Skis
Rip the entire mountain on the Core Series, built in the spirit of innovation and exploration HAGAN was founded on. With three waist widths built to handle different conditions and riding styles, the Core Series brings things back to why you started skiing – it’s a whole lot of fun. Carbon layers improve dampening and provide a stable ride in all terrain. The Paulownia core keeps them light for enjoyable climbing.
The Core 88 is a fantastic all-mountain ski, with a broad shovel for excellent float in powder and a short turning radius and ABS sidewalls for railing hard pack turns.
The Core 88 is the new star in the backcountry. Its light weight provides excellent climbing ease on long ascents while optimal float brings maximum fun on the downhill – a dream combination designed to take on any mountain. Thanks to the wide 128 mm shovel, step-down ABS sidewalls and tourer rocker the Core 88 has an enormously broad application range and is made to be driven extremely hard in every terrain. Designed for medium to long radii turns, this ski will accompany you well in every situation. The carbon fiber and paulownia construction ensures exceptional stiffness, while micro-ABS sidewalls provide a damp and forgiving ride and supreme edge hold. We milled the sides of the paulownia wood core, leaving the backbone of the ski strong and stable, and the perimeter slim for an overall weight reduction. The Carbon Fiber shovel eliminates unneeded material and provides several advantages: the ski is up to 25% damper and feels more stable, edge-grip is more powerful, steering is more precise and the overall ski weight is reduced.
Is this your powder ski or your everyday ski? Yes. From the frontside, to backcountry booters, to pow in the bowls – the Core 88 is an immediate favorite for its playfulness and versatility. Light and maneuverable, but stable through the crud with tip & tail rocker, this ski is ready for anything on the mountain.
The Core 88 replaces the initial and ground-breaking Y-Series model, the Y-Flow. The Y-shape is retained with dimensions revised to optimize performance. The shovel is slightly narrowed to 128mm and the tail increased to 108mm. The new sidecut increases effective edge length, improving tracking and dampening chatter. Another modification from the Y-Flow is the addition of micro-height ABS sidewalls. This brings both an increase in edge hold and overall performance as well as durability. Carbon layers and a paulownia core keep the surface to weight ratio exceptionally low at just 1200 grams in the 176cm length. All these optimizations give the Core 88 an even wider range of uses. Available in 4 lengths from 160 to 184cm, the Core 88 aims to be backcountry skiers go to ski. The Core 88 is a fantastic all-around ski, confirmed by all our mountain guide and athlete developers. Now you can enjoy the Ride.
You can't ski it if you can't get to it. Hagan used its expertise manufacturing super-light race skis to create an all-mountain ski with unmatched surface area to weight ratio, allowing skiers to get to higher and deeper lines with energy to spare.

CARBON CUT CAP TECHNOLOGY
HAGAN's innovative and proprietary carbon fiber inlay in the ski tip increases stability and greatly reduces vibration, improving control and smoothness on hard chattery surfaces..DIE-CUT-BASE
Our graphite sintered bases with die cut inlays are extremely durable with stone-ground base structure ideally tuned for optimal descending and gliding.MULTI RADIUS
Our multiradius concept lets you adapt to snow conditions and speeds as desired, creating short and long turn radii on a totally individual basis. Increase forward pressure to shorten the turning radius, decrease forward pressure to lengthen the turning radius.LOW PROFILE 3D-SHAPE
Our remarkably thin construction in conjunction with a micro-height sidewall greatly reduces weight. 3-Dimensional top surface shaping increases torsional rgidity and maximizes edge grip.ROCKER
All Hagan ski models are equipped with tip and tail rocker. The rocker length varies amongst models between 250 and 390mm front and 90 to 150mm. Optimized for the ascent, the “tour” rocker height is between 3 and 4mm.ELLIPTICAL FRONT SKI
We designed an elliptical shape to keep the oversized shovel perfectly manageable in any snow condition and all types of terrain. The elliptical shape surfs untracked powder perfectly, but also carves through breakable crust and difficult conditions with control and precision.DIAMOND EDGE CAP
The diamond shaped top cap ensures perfect power transmission and reduces swing weight.
- I highly recommend pairing your Core 88 skis with custom-tailored 70%/30% mohair/poly blend HAGAN glue or vacuum climbing skins.
