Best Fit Form
The Hok is designed as an easy to use ski for the backcountry. Its short wide dimensions makes the ski incredibly maneuverable, and the integrated climbing skin gives the Hok great traction for climbing. The right balance of running base and skin material makes the skis' downhill speed manageable and easy to control. Bridging cross-country skis and snowshoes, the Hok combines the maneuverability and ease of use found in snowshoes with the ski’s efficiency of sliding forward rather than lifting and stepping with each stride.
The 145 sizing means the Hoks even work great going downhill. More glide, but a bit less maneuverable in tight spaces. Good floatation for deep snow.
The Hok features a synthetic climbing skin integrated into the base of the ski, steel edges for durability, and a light weight cap construction. In an effort to minimize our carbon footprint, we use, a sustainable paulownia wood core reinforced with a combination of organic, natural fibers and fiberglass. Simple graphics and natural fibers combine with design themes from the the Altai Mountains for a unique look.
The skis comes with inserts matching the extended 75mm norm hole pattern. This is compatible with current 75mm 3pin bindings as well as the universal binding we are offering with the ski. We also have an adapter plate that is compatible with Rottefella NNN BC and Solomon BC bindings.
