ON3P Kartel 98 Skis 2016

The ON3P Kartel 98 Skis are a slightly narrower version of the Kartel 106, and are designed for versatile park and all-mountain skiing. With a 98 mm waist width and a flirty flex, the ON3P Kartel 98 Skis are buttery, yet stable at speed. The extra thick bases and edges, combined with abrasion resistant sidewalls, allow this ski to outlast most others. Excellent turn initiation and edge hold are achieved by the Elliptical Sidecut and tapered tip and tail.


  • Elliptical Rocker Profile – The rocker profile and tip shape are combined into one progressively changing elliptical arc, which allows the tips to plane faster in powder, deflect less in variable snow, and helps the effective edge running within the rocker length to engage in a more natural, effortless way.
  • Elliptical Sidecut – The sidecut consists of an elliptical arc that begins at boot center and gets progressively smaller as it extends toward the tip and tail of the ski, resulting in a ski that carves harder the more it is put on edge, yet remains stable when it is skied flat.
  • 100% Bamboo Core – At the heart of every pair of ON3P skis is a vertically laminated, 100% bamboo core that provides a responsive, yet damp ride. The ON3P core gives the ski strength where it needs it to better resist warping and breakage.
  • Tri-Axial Fiberglass – 22 oz Triaxial Fiberglass provides torsional stiffness, ensuring edge hold and power transfer.
  • Full Length Carbon Stringers – Each ski incorporates unidirectional carbon around the core, adding pop, stiffness, and dampness without any significant increase in weight.
  • Extra Wide Binding Mat – An additional layer of fiberglass mat provides increased screw retention and further prevents the binding from ripping out of the ski. To ensure proper coverage for all types of hole patterns, ON3P extends this mat to nearly full width on every ski they make.
  • UHMW Sidewalls and Tip Spacers – Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene is an incredibly strong material, has a higher abrasion resistance than steel, and resists cracking (unlike ABS).
  • 1.8 mm 4001 Durasurf Sintered Base – ON3P Durasurf 4001 base material provides their skis with better glide and protection from damage compared to other sintered and extruded base material, and is 38% thicker than the industry standard.
  • 2.5 mm x 2.5 mm Extra Thick Edges – ON3P uses a 3/4 wrap for their 2.5 mm x 2.5 mm Rockwell 48C steel edges. The 3/4 wrap allows the tips and tails of the skis to flex, decreasing the risk of delamination.
