Technical info:
Several of Hagan´s models have been updated this year. Boost is very similar to Wai-King we tested last year, despite the name change. This is a light fibreglass-semicap construction with a long setback, which in turn gives a big width difference between the front and back ski. Fairly long turning radius in both ends, standard radius in the waist (20 metres is normal in this category). Average flex in the tail, soft flex in the rest of the ski.

On snow:
The widest model from Hagan is very similar to its predecessor. Although it is a notch heavier this year, it is a little unstable at speed and on hard surfaces. This is due to lightness and a big width difference between the front and back ski. The super light bindings are probably to blame as well, because the ski itself is just a notch lighter than the test winner. At the same time, it performs well at low speed and on soft snow. As last year, Hagan´s widest model is a good choice for you who value maneuverability and efficiency on the ascent over power in challenging terrain.

This sequence of numbers indicates stiffness. Each number corresponds to a part of the ski, from tail to tip. 5 equals the average
for this part and length of the ski. Lower values indicate softer skis, higher values stiffer.
