OAC Skinbased™ skis are designed for all levels of skiers to enjoy easy access to wintery nature everywhere. From city parks to the deep wilderness, our skis are suitable in a wide variety of terrain and conditions. Whether you are brand new to skiing, a seasoned backcountry veteran, or professional user, our skis will provide you with the real freedom of skiing, no matter where your passions take you.
A one-ski quiver, the KAR 147 is our most versatile ski in the SkinbasedTM collection. Its broad width offers good floatation on powder, while its full-length steel edges hold firm on hardpack. Thanks to its relatively short length, the KAR can manage tight turns in even the densest bushes and forests. The wide skin area makes the KAR a great climber, even when pulling a heavy sled. Add these features together, and you have the perfect, all-around backcountry companion.
