THE PURPOSE
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 ski’s 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 then lifting and stepping with each stride.

THE FEATURES
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 corereinforced with a combination of organicnatural fibers and fiberglass. Simple graphics and natural fibers combine with design themes from the the Altai Mountains for a unique look.

THE NAME
The name, ‘Hok’ {hawk}, is the Tuwa word for ski in the Altai Mountains. The Tuwas are the smallest ethnic group in the area and the most dedicated skiers.

BINDINGS
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.
