Technical info:
SGN´s Ur-Rakkar is Rakkar´s big brother, and this model is new this year. It has high rocker in tip and tail, with abrupt rocker transitions. This tip is also boat-shaped. SGN has achieved this by laying the steel edge a little inside the outer edge of the ski. Flat camber and a soft tip. A short setback means that you are positioned in the middle.

On snow:
Where do you prefer your powder? Down steep sides with some varied terrain? Or descending long gentle stretches with some trees to cruise around? SGN Ur-Rakkar is a good ski. It performs better the steeper it gets. You are positioned quite far at the front, and the tip is fairly high, which causes it to plough a little if you stand straight up as you are skiing down gentle terrain. However, it is easier to maneuver than Bent Chetler, one of its main competitors. If you are looking for a wide ski for BC-jibbing and like tearing down the mountain on good snow, and also want to ski switch, then this might be the ski for you.
