Technical info:
ON3P is new in the Norwegian market. Kartel is a heavy ski that is stiff in the waist and soft at the ends. The thick base adds to the weight. The artwork is printed directly onto the thick top layer.

On snow:
ON3N is new in Norway, but has earned a following in Sweden and the US. The model we tested is not ON3P´s most obvious park ski. This is bigger and heavier than Magnus Graner´s promo model for example. Kartel is quite simply a boring ski. It was difficult to turn and not as playful as we expected it to be. It´s a lot heavier than the Honey Badger, but is less stable at speed. However, the width and the big tip makes this ON3P ski versatile. A lot of riders will probably appreciate the somewhat apathetic quality outside the park.
