The opinion of Aventure Nordique
The Kar 149 is a ski with a wide and stable platform that makes it accessible to everyone. Skiing with the Kar 149 is easy! You can turn in parallel or in snowplough, or in telemark for the more experienced skiers.
The Kar 149 is equipped with a sole using Unicoat technology. This is a solid and easy to maintain material that OAC has invented. The Unicoat sole is virtually maintenance free. At the end of the season, for example, it is not necessary to use hot wax to nourish the sole. The Unicoat sole is smooth and almost non-porous.
The KAR 149 has an integrated skin, which is flush with the sole. Thanks to the shape and quality of the skin, the glide is optimal in powdery and soft snow. The advantage of this anti-backwards system; you can alternate descents and ascents without any manipulation!
RTM (Resin Transfer Molding) is a method that allows for a light and efficient construction: the air is sucked out and replaced by resin. The Braidbox construction on the directional fibers allows the Kar to work better in deep snow and to have a better control of the skis. The elastic PU core facilitates handling in powder.
The binding area is reinforced with an aluminum plate and 40 cm of stronger fibers. This system allows for mounting with all Nordic backcountry bindings.
