The opinion of Aventure Nordique
Its short wide dimensions make the ski incredibly maneuvrable, and the integrated clibing 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 maneuvrability and ease fo use fount in snowshoes with the ski's efficiency of sliding forward rather than lifting and stepping with each stride.
The Hok features a synthetic climbing skin integrated into the base of the ski, steel edges for durability, and a light weight cap constuction. In an effort to minimize our carbon footprint, we use, a sustainable paulownia wood core reinforced with a combination of organic natural fibers and fiberglass. Simple grafics and natural fibers combine with desigh themes from the Altai Mountains for a unique look.
