CORE 89 Lite
Advanced skiers - step right up
Passionate touring ski all-rounders will be delighted with this new model added to the multi-award-winning CORE ski family. Following the success of the CORE 84 LITE designed for women in winter 2021/22, the award-winning CORE 89 is now available in a design aimed specifically for female ski tourers. Its name: CORE 89 LITE. Deliberately leaving out the titanium inlay, like the 84 LITE, results in a similarly light ski with a bit more freeride genes. It combines excellent, quick turning with reliable stability. The tail and tip are carbon-reinforced. It has a karuba wood core. The ski promises maximum performance downhill on both narrow and wide turns. It is intended for ambitious women who spend a lot of time on challenging terrain.
From the frontside, to backcountry booters, to pow in the bowls – the Core 89 LITE is a 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.
You can't ski it if you don'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.
Gorgeous satin-finish topographical graphics reveal the wood core.
Rip the entire mountain on the CORE series, built in the spirit of innovation and exploration HAGAN was founded on. The CORE series models are all-rounders aimed at adventurous ski tourers and downhillers who head to the mountains in any conditions and with a wide variety of goals. 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. Karuba cores keep them light for enjoyable climbing.
The Core 89 Lite is a fantastic all-mountain ski, with a broad shovel for excellent float in powder, a short turning radius and micro-ABS sidewalls for railing hard pack turns. 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 shovel and tourer rocker the Core 89 Lite 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. Carbon fiber and karuba construction ensure exceptional stiffness, while micro-ABS sidewalls provide a damp and forgiving ride and supreme edge hold. We 3D mill the paulownia wood core, leaving the backbone of the ski strong and stable, and the perimeter slim for an overall weight reduction.

The Core 89 Lite is the latest update to the ground-breaking Hagan Y-Flow. The Y-shape is retained with dimensions revised to optimize performance. The shovel is slightly narrowed to 127mm and the tail increased to 108mm. The new sidecut increases effective edge length, improving tracking and dampening chatter. Another improvement upon 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 karuba core keep the surface to weight ratio exceptionally low at just 1250 grams in the 164 cm length. All these optimizations give the Core 89 LITE an even wider range of uses. Available in 4 lengths from 156 to 176 cm, the Core 89 LITE aims to be female backcountry skiers go to ski. The Core 89 LITE is a fantastic all-around ski, confirmed by all our mountain guide and athlete developers.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 multi-radius 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 rigidity 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 89 skis with custom-tailored 100% mohair HAGAN hybrid glue Core 89 climbing skins.
