The Kartel 98 returns as our tried & true option for mixing park and all mountain performance. An updated sidecut and rocker profile improves edge hold on hardpack and switch performance, while a new tip taper improves float and smooths the transition between turns. Ski Builder Shawn Hokkanen (above) lays down the topsheet on a freshly built pair of 181cm Kartel 98.
Just ten minutes from downtown Portland, you’ll end the ON3P factory where a small crew of skiers builds each and every pair of ON3P skis. From the beginning, we’ve dedicated ourselves to building skis better, building them ourselves, and building them right here in America. As skiers who founded a manufacturing company, pride comes from this dedication. There’s attachment, obsession, and honor in what we do, and without our craft we’re just like all the rest. But with it, we are ON3P. Who builds your skis?
