What Zag says about the Harfang 96

“The most versatile ski of the line. It adapts to all snow conditions, all speeds and all snow types.

The best compromise between stiffness in torsion and flex. Composed of a double layer multiaxial fiberglass, the goal is to make skis that are effective in all types of snow. From the legendary H-112, having proven themselves attached to the legs of our best riders, the Heavy Duty construction gives skiers maximum reliability and safety. Lightweight, for more off-piste flotation, but stiff to fully enjoy days of chopped snow. This construction gives the ski great edge hold on hard snow so to link the turns.”
